i have this project:

details are provided in the SRS document, the problem lies here:

1. How do i make a software that it works on all java support mobile phone which has different color resolution and depth? i mean that it fits well into the resolution of the mobile and its color depth.
2. I am currently using Netbeans as for development with its CLDC plugin, i am using netbeans coz of its good interface, nice and cool plugins, like CLDC and Visualweb, that i can just drag and drop a button to the interface, but netebans lacks the Junit, which is currently under-0development, which as a matter of fact is required. Eclipse has also a nice layout,easy shortcuts, and its also has junit, but i couldn';t see a CLDC and VisualWeb plugin for it. I am confused, Which IDE should i use?

Please have a go through of my SRS and suggest me which tools will i need, with their links if possible......

3. can anyone help me as a part time job?

Sorry for the awefully slow reply on my part. I don't know if you're still looking for an answer but here are some comments. I skipped through your SRS, it looks interesting. Reminds me of a blog Hinkmond did a little while ago:

To your questions:

1. Basically, when it comes to screen resolution and color depth it is difficult to create an application that covers all possible platforms. The best approach is to target classes of platforms that are similar in their properties such as screen resolution and color depth and then create multiple versions of the software, one for each class of platforms. NetBeans Mobility Pack has support for automatically creating different builds depending on platform properties. See

2. I'm biases, I would suggest NetBeans ;-) especially for mobile development since it integrates really well with emulators and real devices. I am not sure what you mean by "junit is current under development" ... NetBeans has had a junit plug-in for a while already:

I haven't used it yet but I was under the impression that it is pretty functional.
If you're interested in more extense testing frameworks you might also want to have a look at our cqME project

which has a beta-quality NetBeans plugin.

3. Since your project is related to application-level development I would suggest you post a message that you are looking for help on the ME Application Developer forum:

Hope that helps,
