6. Setting up your development environment

Downloading and installing the J2ME Wireless Toolkit page 7 of 7

The J2ME Wireless Toolkit provides a complete development environment to write and test MIDP applications. The download includes tools, documentation, an emulation environment, examples, and a module to integrate with Forte for Java.

Currently, the J2ME Wireless Toolkit is available for Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 2000 only. Windows 95 is not supported. Solaris and Linux versions of the J2ME Wireless Toolkit are under consideration at the time of this writing.

Follow these steps to install the J2ME Wireless Toolkit under Windows:

  1. Download the J2ME Wireless Toolkit.
  2. Run the j2me_wireless_toolkit-1_0_1-fcs.exe program to install the Wireless Toolkit.

When you are prompted for the installation directory, be sure that the fully qualified path to the install directory does not contain any spaces. This will help you avoid possible problems later on when using the toolkit.

If you plan to use Forte for Java for development, select Integrated setup in the Setup Type dialog.
