Chapter 20. Additional MIDP APIs

In addition to the functional categories discussed elsewhere in this book, the MIDP Specification defines some additional APIs that do not fill their own chapters. Also, the MIDP Specification intentionally modifies, refines, or augments the behavior of certain functions that it inherits from CLDC.

This chapter introduces the MIDP Timer APIs. Furthermore, this chapter discusses the system properties and resource access mechanisms defined by the MIDP Specification, as well as explains how the MIDP Specification overrides the behavior of the System.exit method inherited from CLDC.
