Installing and Setting Up the JDK

Many readers can skip this section. It is included for readers who are relatively new to Java and need a refresher on installation procedures. If you already know how to install the JDK or already have it installed on your computer, skip to the section titled “Installing and Setting Up the MIDP.”

The JDK has gone through many versions. Currently, Sun has released version 6 of the JDK. This book uses this version. If you are still working with version 1.5.x, the programs are likely to compile without problems, but earlier versions cannot be used. Among other things, MIDP 2.0 is not supported by earlier versions; if you use NetBeans, you must begin with version 1.5.x. (NetBeans is discussed in Chapter 6.)
