I'm experienced J2SE programmer, but I know almost nothing about J2ME.

Can you tell me what IDE do you use for J2ME development?
Any other idea/suggestion to get me started?

(I use Eclipse for J2SE)

Stick with Eclipse. If you are already familiar with it then that's the most important this (not to mention that it's an excellent IDE).

I don't use Eclipse myself but if I'm not mistaken there is a mobility plug-in to ease mobile development.

Thank you. Now another question, which Eclipse plug-in? I searched internet and came across EclipseMe. In fact I'm downloading it right now  Roll Eyes Is it good choice? Is there some other/better plug-in?

Yeah, that's the one.

I'm not an Eclipse user myself so I forgot the name before.

Try NetBeans. It's good for J2SE development as well, great for J2ME and you don't need to search for J2ME plugins because they are part of original distribution :

The Mobility Suite doesn't count as a plug-in?

Nevermind. Netbeans+Mobility Suite and Eclipse+EclipseME are pretty much the same feature-wise. Eclipse might be a bit less of a resource hog and it's what he's used to so I think that's a clincher.

Actually, it is set of plug-ins (modules).  It's available as a separate installer for several reasons but always available from the same download page as NetBeans main installer. No need to  collect all components from different sites.

Speaking about features and performance - you should really try NB 4.1.  You will enjoy built-in preprocessor, ant based build system (no need to export ant scripts) as well as the MIDP visual editor.

I have it. It's great (and so is Eclipse) but it's hard to work with the sound of my computer constantly whimpering  Grin

NetBeans 4.0 kicks ass Cool

The IDE is more stable then 3.6 (i havent seen none of those nasty java.lang.arrayoutbounds erros when the intelligent code filler listbox thing pops up trying to load j2me classes...).

It compiles a hell of a lot faster.... yes its very slow to load the app, 30 seconds to a minute. but compilation speed is excellent. may seem slow to some but consider the app compiles, preverifies, obfuscates, packages, etc etc. its awesome.

Even John Carmack is using NetBeans:

(though he does complain about the ide being very slow)

runs fine on my laptop (1.8ghz p4, 512 ram) though makes the little fan spin annoyingly a lot.

rules are there to be broken... same goes for the rules of programming classes in j2me
