I need expert advice on moving first steps towards a toy project, to learn about this technology.
These are the requirements.
A small java application that must run on any handheld device, including compatible mobile phones and PDAs. The application reads two strings, stores them into a local file [db], and returns a confirmation message on screen. Both the application and the db must be obfuscated, with a means to de-obfuscate the db once sent back to a desktop. The gui must take the full screen and adapt to its size on the fly.
My development tools.
operating systems: mac osx, linux
My testing tools.
HP iPaq 4150
Nokia phone serie60
I need direction on what documentation to read, a source code I can read and play with, and the necessary java mobile development kit. I kept reading the website, but I got lost in the pages. Is there a "down to earth" "how to" "step by step" whatever to get started?
