Hello everyone,

before I learn java more far,

I want to ask about, about java embedded and java for mobile,

I saw this source in : oracle

that java can use for device.

My question : Is "java embedded" can be used to create driver for printer or another device?
: About "java mobile" can I create application for mobile using java?
: Are "java embedded" & "java mobile" tutorial same or different with java in O'reilly book that I read now?

I ask this question because I interest to program device and I expect someday I can became as device programmer.

Please tell me

Thank you

I am sure you can write a printer driver, but C/C++ is probably better for low-level programming. Of course you can create mobile apps, and embedded programming can be different from mobile because most mobile phones have much more memory than many embedded devices.

Firstly learning Java language would be necessary for building Java Mobile applications.

So for mobile applications you can check out JavaME or Android but for both you got to know Java.

There are lot of tutorials for JavaME and Android- You can start at javame tutorial and android tutorial
