Introduction to enterprise programming The programmer had to know many details about the network and sometimes even the hardware. You usually needed to understand the various ?layers? of the networking protocol, and there were a lot of different functions in each different networking library concerned with connecting, packing, and unpacking blocks of information; shipping those blocks back and forth; and handshaking. It was a daunting task.
However, the basic idea of distributed computing is not so difficult, and is abstracted very nicely in the Java libraries. You want to:- · Get some information from that machine over there and move it to this machine here, or vice versa. This is accomplished with basic network programming.
· Connect to a database, which may live across a network. This is accomplished with Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC), which is an abstraction away from the messy, platform-specific details of SQL
The J2ME Platform J2ME book at wikibooks. This book not only covers the MIDP device programming; but, also the full J2ME Platform. Programming:J2ME is still a "work in
progress". Often, in order to understand what optional APIs are used with specific devices we need to understand the underlying consumer platform in which our J2ME technology is in fact implemented. For example, if you know the SymbianOS version of a SymbianOS powered device than you have a clear idea what optional J2ME APis are included on that device.
As Mobile Operating Systems and CPUs merge than it becomes important to also know what CPU is in the device or even what cellular network or network infrastructure the device is connected or interfaces with in its operation. thus, this section covers operating systems, CPUs, and network infrastructure as it relates to J2ME programming and J2ME application development.
Programming The Java? language is an object-oriented programming language created by Sun Microsystems. It was named after the Indonesian isle of Java, whence great coffee has flowed.
This book is an introduction to the amazing breadth of the Java programming language and platform. A full treatment of Java would be an enormous book; this book will concentrate on the essential aspects of Java necessary to understand the language and platform. Other special purpose books on Java, such as Java Enterprise Edition programming, or Java Swing programming, would complement this book nicely.
Thinking in Java, 3rd ed. Revision 4.0 This book assumes that you have some programming familiarity: you understand that a program is a collection of statements, the idea of a subroutine/function/macro, control statements such as ?if? and looping constructs such as ?while,? etc. However, you might have learned this in many places, such as programming with a macro language or working with a tool like Perl. As long as you?ve programmed to the point where you feel comfortable with the basic ideas of programming, you?ll be able to work through this book. Of course, the book will be easier for the C programmers and more so for the C++ programmers, so don?t count yourself out if you?re not experienced with those languages?but come willing to work hard (also, the multimedia CD that accompanies this book will bring you up to speed in the fundamentals necessary to learn Java). However, I will be introducing the concepts of object-oriented programming (OOP) and Java?s basic control mechanisms.
