Coding for mobile phones

I have an old LG MG280 mobile phone that I would like to code for some simple things. It supports Java, but I know it is not just a Java ME application. It must follow certain specifications or the application will not work. Does anyone know what these specs are?

JavaME platforms are composed of profile and configuration. Most mobile phones use some combination of Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) and Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC).

LG MG280 you are interested in using MIDP-2.0 and CLDC-1.1, which is pretty standard.

To get started with development, you probably want to use the Sun Java Wireless Toolkit (often abbreviated to SJWT or WTK). Or, if you are a Windows user, you can use the (newer) JavaME SDK 3.0 . This gives you the tools you need to compile / batch applications and an emulator that allows you to run / debug your application on the desktop.

There are many tutorials available on the Internet. Here are a few to get you started:



Find out what J2ME profile has - MIDP, etc. Then find a related tutorial such as this one .
