Java Micro edition: the most ubiquitous application platform for Mobile Devices
Java Platform, Micro Edition, or Java ME, is a Java platform designed for mobile devices and embedded systems. Target devices range from industrial controls to mobile phones and set-top boxes. Java ME was formerly known as Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME).
Java ME is deployed on billions of devices, supported by leading tool vendors, and used worldwide.Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) provides a robust, flexible environment for applications running on mobile and other embedded devices—mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), TV set-top boxes, and printers. It includes flexible user interfaces, robust security, built-in network protocols, and support for networked and offline applications that can be downloaded dynamically.
Applications based on Java ME are portable across many devices, yet leverage each device’s native capabilities.
