How is J2me and wap(wml) related? Are they competition to each other?(or) Is j2me just an enhancement of wap technology? I'm new to this field. If anybody could clearify me with some resources it would be appreciated.

These two technologies are only related by the hardware platform they are typically NOT found on, both are designed for small devices. J2ME is a software platform for developing and executing Java software on devices with small amounts of resources (such as a pager or PDA). The J2ME platform includes libraries and a virtual machine (there is more than one version of each).

WAP is a protocol, it stands for Wireless Application Protocol. It is simply a standard to send data over a network. The neat thing about WAP is that it is compatible with most wireless networks (but works fine with TCP too).
