    Advice on where to get some good tutorials / learning sites regarding J2ME. (besides sun’s website of course)
    Need to get to grips with it fast….as in yesterday. Have a good knowledge of Java already, but a bit rusty.

    We all know the pain of having a negative amount of time to a deadline. I lost the links I had a while back for J2ME tutorials but here are some new ones I got:

    http://www.j2meolympus.com/freebooks/freej2mebooks.jsp -Free J2ME books, requires registering

    http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/views/java/tutorials.jsp -Several Java ones here, some J2ME

    http://www.microjava.com/ -This site looks promising, even has a step by step tutorial to making a basic game

    http://www.palowireless.com/java/tutorials.asp -More tutorials here

    http://www.troobloo.com/tech/j2me.shtml -J2ME stuff here,

    http://www.codewarrioru.com/BaseServlet/containSched;jsessionid=aaa68aC2NkGNW9?schedulingId=5000661 -I saw this recommended in a Fourm, requires registration.

    Aside from that there are the usual suspects: http://www.freeprogrammingresources.com , http://www.gamedev.net .

    Sorry that this isn’t much, mainly just Google work but good luck on being able to learn all you need to know.

    Hey, I found the old post I made a while back when I was more interested in mobile games development ( http://www.gamedevelopers.ie/community/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=164 ) and in it, Woody seems to have linked this saying that it was the best article for starting J2ME games development: http://www.gamedev.net/reference/articles/article1949.asp

    Any recommendations on books as well as the above.
    I have a Sony Erricson 610 and am getting a 700i, got the Dev toolkit, and managed to load programs to the phone.
    Now , one is MIDP1.0 and the other 2.0, one has a 3d chip and the other has none. So what generic programming book should I get for games, there a re a few on amazon, but very few !!!!
    Also the mobile games seem to be just another tower of Babel there, what dev tool should I use, Sun have something called the Java one or a thing like that, or would I be better off use a notepad application ?

    Omen if you have any specific questions i will help you out.

    gamedev.net has a good Mobile phone/console forum.

    There are games with Sample code in Windows Toolkit if you want to take a look.
