I recently received a J2ME enabled Phone, a Nokia 6310i. This was my chance to experiment with the Java 2 Micro Edition. What fun!
I installed the J2ME Wireless Toolkit from Sun, that works very well. It is very easy to deploy and test your application on various devices. Standard emulators are included within the application, others can be added. Playing around with Java 2 Micro Edition I created a few applications, of wich one of them can be very useful. If you'd like to install it and play around with it, be welcome!
This application is created using the MIDP 1.0 Specification, so every Java enabled phone should be able to run it.
When you watch a tennis match on television, the umpire on the chair has a kind of organizer to record the score. Well, your Java-enabled phone can do that for you. I've tried to put the tennis rules in this application and it really works. Might be handy at the next tournament at your club.
Download the Tennis application here and install it on your phone or other J2ME enabled device, please refer to the documentation of your phone to install the application. On my Nokia you will need the Nokia Applicatin Installer to install the application using Infrared Communication between your PC and the phone.
When the match has begun, the match time will appear at the bottom of the screen. When a mistake has been made, a correction can be achieved by pressing the back key, the situation of the previous point will be restored then.
Incoming calls or other interruptions will not destroy the score. Everytime the application is interrupted, the current state will be stored. Even when the application has been terminated by the user (by pressing Options, Exit) the current state will be stored. To start a new game, select "New Game" in the options menu.
You may freely distribute this application as long as it's content is not changed.
