How to set up a development environment for J2ME
The first time I tried to build a J2ME (Java2 Mobile Edition) application, I had a hard time choosing the right tools.
Hereâ€™s a tiny guide to setup a development environment for J2ME (under Windows) :
- Install a JVM (Java Virtual Machine). I used jre_1.5.0.09 from http://java.sun.com/
- Install Eclipse (I used version 3.1.2) from http://www.eclipse.com/
- Install Nokia Prototype SDK from http://www.forum.nokia.com/
- Install EclipseME: Open eclipse and go to Menu->Help->Software Updates->Find and Install -> New remote site then enter in the address field http://eclipseme.org/updates
Nokia Prototype SDK is called a â€œWireless Toolkitâ€, and is only available under Windows.
If you run Linux, youâ€™ll have to choose another Wireless toolkit as â€œSun Wireless Toolkitâ€ (Man google)
