E-Books on Mobile Programming

Hey experts,

I am taking a course on Pervasive Computing Systems & Applications (basically its name should be Programming for Mobile Devices). Here is the syllabus of the course: http://students.aub.edu.lb/~mte01/EECE%20679%20Syllabus.doc.

It's going to cover basically three types of languages/IDEs (which constitute around 99% of code for mobile devices):
1- Java 2 Micro Edition
2- C# (The mobile emulator in Visual Studio.NET 2003 for Windows CE.NET)
3- Palm OS Development Environment (using Metrowerk’s Code Worrior IDE)

Can anyone provide me with any E-Books, links to web pages....etc that can provide helpful knowledge in these material (especially the 1st & the 3rd)?....in addition to some material that I have

P.S.: Refer to the syllabus of the course for any extra information on what I need.

Hi mte01,

>>1- Java 2 Micro Edition

MIDP for Palm OS is a Java runtime environment for Palm OS handhelds. It lets Palm OS users run the same Java technology-based applications ("Java applications") that are available for other MIDP-compliant devices, such as mobile phones and pagers.

Thank you bhpr for your comment (and excuse me for my late response), but all these links do not have any code that would help me when I will be writing programs on these 3 platforms....

If no further comment were made in a few days, I will close this question, and open a new one so experts can notice it again........Mikal 613 provided me an E-book on the .NET Compact Framework, I'll be waiting for assisting code on the other two platforms.......

Thanks mte01,

J2ME toolkit comes with several examples and explanation docs.

First download J2ME toolkit from http://java.sum.com web site, and extract it to a folder you will see several examples with src code.
