The kjava download at sun has been replaced by the latest j2me download. I
just bought this book - are there replacement examples/text for the sections
that reference the kjava which are no longer in use?

KJava is no longer distributed by Sun. However, seeking a replacement depends
a little on your target platform(s) and needs. Because the PDA Profile is
still forthcoming, development on PDAs like Palm require you to choose from
options that include:

1. Use Sun's MIDP for Palm OS
2. Use a third party implementation of the CLDC that still includes KJava
(like that from esmertec's Jbed)
3. Use a non-J2ME solution like Waba or VAME
4. Look at CDC and other CDC Profiles (some of which are not yet released)
for developing PDA applications on higher end PDAs such as iPaq.

In the book, we have suggested that those who want to develop J2ME solutions
look at either MIDP for Palm OS which allows you to use the MID Profile
discussed in the book, or look at Jbed (using KJava) which is what we used to
develop the Palm apps shown in the book.

The folks at Sun have indicated that the PDA Profile is coming out this year,
however this is a profile that has been long on promise and short on delivery
for awhile.

Hope this helps
