Badly worded, and completely irrelevant. All classes in the java.lang package are imported automatically. (gargi, that means you never need to

impoty java.lang.* libray


http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/third_edition/html/packages.html#7.5.5

How did you compile your code? Java ME complies to Java 1.3 and StringBuilder was introduced in Java 1.5. A Java 1.5+ compile will substitute String concatenation code with StringBuilder.append(...). You need to compile to a target of version 1.3. The exact way in which you do that will depend on your development environment.

Please TellTheDetails. We can't advise you without knowing how you compile your code.

Did you go through the links I posted, particularly the second one? What don't you understand about compiling to a particular target version?

I suggest you update/upgrade your development environment. WTK 2.0 is ancient history, 2.5.1 was out at least two years ago and was superseded by the Java ME SDK 3.0, presently in version 3.0.5.

I haven't used the WTK for so long (and don't presently have it installed) that I can't remember whether there's an option to set the compile target version. If you can't upgrade to a more recent IDE, just search around in the options.
