Course Description

This course introduces experienced Java programmers to the Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME). J2ME includes flexible user interfaces, robust security, built-in network protocols, and support for networked and offline applications that can be downloaded dynamically. Applications based on J2ME are portable across many devices, yet leverage each device's native capabilities. The course introduces skills in J2ME for wireless devices via the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP). It begins with a top-down tour of the J2ME architecture, focusing on wireless programming via the Connected, Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) and the MIDP. It focuses on application of concepts through substantial hands-on exercises

Course Objectives

  • Understand the variety of mobile platforms and how their differences influence design
  • Discuss the user experience on a mobile device
  • Highlight the differences between designing mobile web sites vs. mobile applications
  • Have an insight on the handoff between design and development
  • Learn J2ME development through hands-on programming tutorials
  • Know the tips, tricks and time saving coding techniques that tech gurus follow to develop applications
  • Understand the problems faced in deploying mobile solutions for the enterprise, as well as developing applications on the various mobile platforms
