    Hi Ben,

    I was Googling for tips on how to unit test j2me in eclipse and came across your post. What a cool approach – rewrite the core UI classes as do-nothing stubs and make sure these are ahead of the real ones in your classpath. In fact my experience of struggling with mocks for ages matches yours exactly, so I’m just about to try this.

    Now for the cheeky bit – don’t suppose you’re willing to share what you did with this are you please?
