Hi Benjamin Evans & Martijn Verburg,

Its so good to finally be able to talk to you guys. I strongly believe Java is still relevant and I wish to rekindle my passion for it.

I have done some work using J2ME (Micro Edition). I heard it is now deprecated in Java 7.

Firstly, I would like to know what is the new process/technology for producing applications that run on Java enabled phones.

Secondly, does your book cover the API for this functionality? To what extent does it do so?


thank you.

Hi there,

We don't cover mobile development in our book, primarily because it's in a state of flux. There is a new version of J2ME coming out that will be baselined on Java 7 (minus invokedynamic), but that is still at least a year away last time I checked. Your best bet right now for modern smartphones is Android, Phone Gap, iOS or 'HTML 5'.

Phone Gap


Phone gap is a framework to enable cross platform development for apps across mobile devices.

I agree with Martijn. If you are looking for mobile development check out Android and iOS.
