The J2ME emulator is a critical part of J2ME development because it enables you to test MIDlets in your development environment without the need of a physical device. This lesson explored the details of the J2ME emulator and what is has to offer in terms of MIDlet testing. You learned about the standard J2ME emulator that ships with the J2ME Wireless Toolkit, as well as another comparable emulator made available by Motorola. This lesson guided you through the specifics of running the J2ME emulator directly from a command line, as well as from within a visual development environment.
Now that you are comfortable with the use of the J2ME emulator to test MIDlets, you're ready to begin learning how to build MIDlets on your own. The next lesson tackles the basics of MIDlet construction and guides you through the development of your first MIDlet.
