Beginning J2ME: From Novi. has been added to your Basket. It really feels like Li and Knudsen are revealing to us in a manner we can understand the workings of J2ME as opposed to just throwing pages and chapters together to make up bulk. This book will give you good solid foundation to start with if you are new to J2ME or you have been away from it for some time. In my case I had been away doing a lot of heavy J2EE stuff and almost lost touch with J2ME. This books very quickly refreshed my J2ME skills. Read this book for what it is-an excellent intro for the novice or a refresher for ones who have wandered off-course.

I did not realize this book was published in 2005 (bought it end-2008).

This book focuses on CLDC & MIDP using the lcdui package. Recent cellphones are CDC-based and use a swing subset (which this book does not mention).

Also, understandably, none of the associated (newer) JSRs are covered.

Use this book ONLY if you are coding for older or less capable cellphones or you simply want to code to a least common denominator to run on every cellphone (don't dream of creating any iPhone-killer apps if so).

Even then, you could easily pick up the same info online.

The title says it all. For someone who has never done J2ME before, this is a great book. It takes you from knowing nothing about j2ME to being able to create a reasonably non-trivial J2ME midlet in short, very readable chapters. It did a good job introducing profiles and configurations and whatnot (Sun's J2ME page always seemed like too much to sort out for a J2ME beginner) and then jumps right into what you need to know for coding. It even does some introductory work on game programming, though realistically you will need a more advanced J2ME game book if this is your intended use of J2ME.

This book is written in a very straightforward manner without reverting to complex terms and abstract concepts. It feels more concrete and solid than many books I have read on the subject. It really feels like Li and Knudsen are revealing to us in a manner we can understand the workings of J2ME as opposed to just throwing pages and chapters together to make up bulk. This book will give you good solid foundation to start with if you are new to J2ME or you have been away from it for some time.

The text book was in good condition and met my expectations.

J2ME From Novice to Professional is a good book. However, there are few exapmles, dispite clear.

J2ME is a jungle of configurations, profiles, and APIs. A beginner's book might soar over the jungle like an exotic bird, pretty but insubstantial. Such a book would see everything from a 20,000 foot view. You'd see the lay of the land, but wouldn't get your feet wet.

Another approach would be for the authors to grab their machetes and start hacking their way in, following a particular path. You'd get all dirty and sweaty and get a lot of experience, but not necessarily understand exactly how you got there.

This book decidedly takes this latter path. After a brief introductory chapter, it concentrates on the core APIs and the most commonly implemented configuration and device profile. Although there's plenty of practical information on tools and lots of code examples, as a reader unfamiliar with J2ME, and someone who doesn't own a Java-enabled phone, I felt disoriented. As an introduction to J2ME programming, I felt the book was lacking in background and motivations.

Striking a balance between the two approaches I described might be a fool's errand. Therefore you would probably need one book from each category to really get involved in J2ME development.

I have to admit that I didn't really enjoy this book, however it is still a good book and worth considering if you are looking for an introduction to J2ME. I found that I didn't really connect with the writing style and therefore the process of reviewing this text was a bit more laborious than I had hoped.

"Beginning J2ME Third Edition" provides an update on the latest J2ME technologies and gives it good coverage, with a comparison to the older technologies (so no problems if you're stuck a few versions behind). I also felt that the samples sometimes wandered between being too small and not exercising the given point through to being too large and burying the example in pages of code.

In the end maybe I was just disappointed in what I felt was cursory coverage from two good authors.

It's not all bad news though. The samples are still very useful and the coverage of some areas that I had found confusing in other books was much clearer here.

Maybe my impression of this book was affected by my lack of connection to the text. There may be better books out there, but I've found they too have limitations and may not be as up to date as this one; you'll have to weigh this with your requirements. I guess I'm still waiting for something else.
