This book presents LWUIT through an optimum mix of theory and practice. Classes are described and their applications are demonstrated through a large number of examples. Example code is thoroughly analyzed and many screenshots are included to show what happens when the code is executed. Custom classes are built progressively with a thorough explanation of each step. The book also presents the underlying structural features of LWUIT that are important for skillful use of the API This book is for Java ME developers who want to create compelling user interfaces for Java ME applications, and want to use LWUIT to make this happen
