Question: I am going to start applications development for wireless
devices. Could you guide me what I could use for that?
Answer: The production release of the J2ME Wireless Toolkit 2.0 is
now available. This version of the toolkit supports the MIDP 2.0 (JSR-118)
specification as well as the Wireless Messaging API (JSR-120), and Mobile Media

developers with the emulation environments, documentation and examples needed to
develop Java technology applications targeted at CLDC/MIDP compliant mobile
phones and entry level PDAs. Two products are available depending on your needs.
Both tools are available at no charge to individual applications developers.
