The article provides code for displaying a bar while loading application.

Code presented is out of larger context so understanding of JavaME programming is needed to create a working demo out of it. Author concentrated on the displaying aspect - code that animates bar is not "aware" of loading progress. Nevertheless it is a useful technique to give user something moving when waiting for an app to run. I've seen it several times and it is a good practice IMO, because user has the feedback that app is starting fine, and it helps to hide slowness. Although this is arguably good for user, better make an app faster if possible. Time when app is loading might be also used for displaying useful tips or ads to user, so don't make your app too fast ;).

I'm a little worried about draw class name - I am accustomed that all Java classes start with capital letters.
