I am new to this MIDlet-business. I read somewhere that: ?MIDlet programming is easier than J2SE programming because the MIDP API is simpler? Where can I find the MIDP API:s:? How do I know which classes I can use in my application?
You can find that information from java.sun.com/j2me and several books about J2ME programming. If I'm not mistaken, you get a full set of CDLC/MIDP API pages when you install Forte/Sun ONE for J2ME.
Note that there are basically four sets of classes which complement each other you should be aware of:
- CLDC API. Source: java.sun.com
- MIDP API. Source: java.sun.com
- J2ME extension APIs. Source: java.sun.com
- Manufacturer extension APIs (e.g. Nokia SMS API, Nokia UI API). Source: Forum Nokia and other manufacturers for their respective extensions
