Greetings Java Experts
I will be starting my Game development soon with J2ME and I downloaded J2ME wireless toolkit version 2.1 from sun and now the below shown is what I am supposed to do  
draw one external circle which determines the limit and one internal
which determines the wall,
the bricks have not to drawn independantly,
we can have two versions:
each time the ball hits the wall one parcell disappears
each time the ball hits the wall one parcell appears

the parcell or brick width and thickness can be changed as an option


and cud you pls let me know what are the steps involved in building such J2ME
application

Regards
Ronan

 Hello,
  To start working on J2ME game development, you should have a look at MIDlet and Canvas classes from the document. Also, you can search Graphics class to see how to draw primitive graphics and images as your need.
  You can also view a tutorial at Sun.

  Best wishes,
