Before you start
This tutorial demonstrates how to develop Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) applications using the Eclipse IDE, the open source EclipseME plug-in, and the Sun J2ME Wireless Toolkit.
This tutorial is written for J2ME developers who are interested in using the Eclipse IDE to increase productivity. It also addresses Java Eclipse developers who want to produce J2ME mobile applications in their favorite IDE. Having a basic knowledge of Eclipse and J2ME helps you complete the tasks described in this tutorial.
To complete the tasks and run the sample code in this tutorial, you must have the Eclipse IDE Version 2.1.x or 3.x installed. You also need to download and install the free J2ME Wireless Toolkit from Sun Microsystems (http://java.sun.com/products/j2mewtoolkit/).
