He also leads a team of a young and highly talented group of engineers engaged in product (both hardware and software) development. He has been associated with a wide variety of automation projects, including controls for special purpose machines, blast furnace charge control, large air pollution control systems, controls for cogeneration plants in sugar factories, supervisory control for small hydel plants, turbine governors, and substation automation including associated SCADA.

This book would never have seen daylight had it not been for the excellent support that I received from the editorial team at Packt Publishing. I must express my grateful appreciation of the roles played by Douglas Paterson at the critical formative stage of the book, and, later by Dhiraj Chandiramani. Lata Basantani and Zainab Bagasrawala made sure that the project remained on schedule, while Shadab Khan and his team deftly guided the completion process. I am grateful for the comments of the reviewers that helped me maintain clarity of thought, and ensured the technical integrity of the book.
On the personal front, first and foremost, I am indebted to Dada who equipped me with the ability to undertake such an activity. The encouragement and unstinting support I received from my wife Jyoti were a great source of strength and helped me survive those difficult times when I was nearly swamped by my various commitments and the temptation to give up was great. Isaac, my son-in-law, has always encouraged me to write and was a great confidence booster. Finally, I must acknowledge the sacrifices made by my grandchildren Anunita and Ian who spent many unhappy days and evenings without my
participation in their games.

LWUIT 1.1 for Java ME Developers
The Lightweight Toolkit (LWUIT) is designed to help developers to create highly attractive User Interfaces for MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.1 compliant small devices like mobile phones. This toolkit supports a number of interesting widgets and features like theming, animations, transitions, and logging. LWUIT also addresses the issue of fragmentation by making it possible to implement screens with a device independent look and feel.
This book covers the widgets and functionalities of the library in detail, demonstrating their use with a large number of examples and a profusion of screenshots. A number of structural and architectural issues are discussed to help you gain insight into the inner workings of the library.
LWUIT is an evolving library and we are bound to see modifications and additions to its current repertoire. The knowledge you gain from this book...
