First book devoted to MMAPI has been released - learn to add audio/video/tones/MIDI to your Java enabled phones.
Update 10th May 2006: Sorry! All free copies are gone. If you need it, please consider buying the book.
In keeping with complete compliance with the java.net weblog policies, may I introduce you in a selfless way to my book on Mobile Media API, recently released by Apress.
Mobile Media API, as you may know, allows you to add multimedia capabilities to your Java enabled device (For an introduction to this API, please read a tutorial at java.net by, ahem, me, here: http://today.java.net/pub/a/today/2005/09/27/j2me4.html ). The book covers this API in exhaustive detail and shows you how to add audio and video, generate tones, play with MIDI, capture audio and video streams and so on.
You can buy the book at Amazon here , or get to the book's website at Apress here . The Apress site also has a sample chapter on Media Player Lifecycle and Events . Finally, the book's companion site is here , where I run a case study on audio/video/text blogging from your mobile phone using MMAPI.
I also plan to giveaway two copies of the book to the first two people who promise to write a review on Amazon afterwards. Please email and convince me of your commitment at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Comments, feedback etc. also welcome at email@example.com .
