Creating a Map Type Selector for the Maps API for Java ME by jasfox. This was a winner of the Asha Touch Competition 2012Q3.
A map selector is a UI component for choosing the type of map to display (e.g. street map, terrain, satellite view etc.) This article explains how to create a Map Type Selector for both full-touch and non full-touch Java ME phones.
An appropriate UI is dynamically created at run time to utilise Full Touch features where they are available. The code also demonstrates how to create a fallback option so simpler feature phones are also supported.
