Im pretty sure (at least for now) that the most efficient way to write J2ME apps is from the bottom up without using any special libs. But keep up the good work, perhaps some day memory and performance restrictions will make your package a great tool.

I agree with you but there are a lot of capable phones and pdas already there, and it's handy to have a common code even for coding bottom up!

At least there are some basic ideas you could share among the same code in a 2d game: init,main game loop, tiledmap,sprites. My library provides a full environment, but you can (may be you do not, but beginners do) take ideas/code from mine and use as you please. Indeed the license is lgpl, so you can develop a comercial appl with it! (In theory) Wink

Indeed I always find it useful to see other peoples code that they know in practice. As we all know, making things work for J2ME isnt always as easy as it seems at first.
