Jonathan Knudsen, Author and developer
Java 2ME (Micro Edition) is the client-side Java development platform for
building wireless Java-based cell phone and PDA applications. This book
addresses the fun challenge of building game applications for these kinds of
portable devices. Author Carol Hamer shows you how to
use J2ME for developing, using the latest MIDP 2.0 specification.
If you are new to developing with J2ME, we recommend you first read Jonathan
Knudsens Wireless Java: Developing with J2ME, Second Edition.
We suggest that you read this book second, then
complete the "series" with David Crofts Advanced
Java Game Programming, for a complete Apress experience of game
developing with Java.
