    Hi,

    Re: Getting started with mobile applications...help please!

    Hi pfci,

    Sharvan's tip is right: Eclipse and NetBeans are the most used IDEs to develop Java ME applications.

    When you download NetBeans, choose the version containing Java ME support, since it'll contain all tools needed to develop your apps.

    If you choose Eclipse, then you should also download EclipseME and Sun's Wireless Toolkit.

    Also, take a look at this Forum Nokia Wiki page, that contains all the needed infos to start Java ME study and development:

    Re: Getting started with mobile applications...help please!

    Thanks a lot for your answers!
    Which IDE is better or easier to use?? Choosing NetBeans or Eclipse depends on the type of application Im going to develop?
    Once I have the ide, in which order do I have to install the IDE, sdk and other tools?

    Thanks

    Personally I feel NetBeans is easier to use, especially for beginners. The order in which you install the tools isn't really important (you can do it like in the screencast I mentioned, it shows you everything).

    IDEs are a very personal matter, so the best option would be to try them by yourself and see which is the one you prefer. Anyway, both of them are extremely good.

    Pants. I have to increase my screen res to see the control on the window, which then doesn't work. I get the intro, then nothing.
