Hi Rohit,

I don't have any idea about "Eclipse Pulsar". I started my learning with Netbeans 6.1. In it you can create a new mobile application project. To start with you can create a hello world midlet while creating a project. Run the project , mobile simulator will get open where you will see output. Feel working of it. Then from right hand side GUI , to same hello midlet you can add different GUI components.

Build this project, in dist folder of netbeans , you will get a jar file. Transfer it to your mobile and install it, run it. that's it.

Good, Better, Best, Don't take rest until, Good becomes Better, and Better becomes Best.
