EclipseME is a plugin to the open-source Eclipse IDE that supports Java ME development. EclipseME does the "grunt work" of connecting Wireless Toolkits to the Eclipse development environment, allowing you to focus on developing your application, rather than worrying about the special needs of Java ME development.
For instructions on downloading, installing and configuring EclipseME and other tools needed for developing Java ME applications (MIDlets) for S60, and for writing your first MIDlet, see Getting started with Java ME and the articles it links to, Installing Java ME development tools for Symbian and Creating your first MIDlet using EclipseME.
The EclipseME plugin has the following features:
- Multiple wireless toolkit support
- Wireless toolkit preferences
- Platform component and definition support
- Create new J2ME Midlet Suite Project
- Create new MIDlet
- Java Application Descriptor (JAD) editor
- Automatic incremental preverification
- Eclipse launch support for Emulator
- MIDlet debugging support
- JAR and obfuscated JAR packaging
- Over the air deployment testing server
- Export Antenna build files
- Automatic MIDlet signing
EclipseME is now part of the Eclipse project under a new name: Mobile Tools for Java (MTJ). MTJ is included in the Eclipse Pulsar package. For istructions about creating your first MIDlet using this environment, see Developing MIDlets using Pulsar and Eclipse.
