The two are more complementary than they are opposite. It's quite common to use GPS to obtain a position that can then be used on a map.

JSR-179 (which is where the javax.microedition.location package is defined) is not part of the CDC or CLDC; you'll need to add it manually to whatever environment you intend to use if it's not pre-installed (as it apparently isn't in your environment).

You can find the Specification, javadocs and reference implementation somewhere around here. That should allow you to compile the code.

How to use it in the emulator or in an actual device, I have no idea.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
