Java ME
JME (Java Micro Edition). Formerly called J2ME (Java 2 Micro Edition), or JME and still called that by many — Java for handhelds and cellphones. Java ME does not refer to any VM or API (Application Programming Interface), it’s only an umbrella term for all smaller-than-desktop Java technologies, e.g. MIDP and Personal Profile. Personal profile is common on PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) and PDA/cellphones. MIDP (Mobile Information Device Profile) in common on simple cellphones without PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) abilities. J2ME typically would be the Java language with the enterprise communications stripped out of it. RMI (Remote Method Invocation) is optional. Usually midlets must be signed, but other than that, there is no security breakout.

Oddly, MIDP is required to support HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) but not the lower level TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) socket protocol it is based on. Some handsets support TCP/IP sockets.

CDC (Connected Device Configuration) (Connected Device Configuration) is 2.5 meg and might be used in set top boxes. It is foundation for the Personal Basis Profile.

KVM (Kilobyte Virtual Machine) is smaller still and is designed for use in PalmPilot type PDAs PDA pocket organisers), mobiles, watches, embedded devices with low powered CPUs (Central Processing Units) and intermittent network connectivity (MP3 player, electronics in a car dashboard, etc.).

Personal Java was an earlier attempt and is now obsolete.

There are a set of API s, starting from smallest to biggest, roughly they go: KVM (128K RAM (Random Access Memory)), CLDC (Connected Limited Device Configuration) (160K RAM ), MIDP 1.0 Profile (288K RAM), CDC (2MB RAM), MIDP 2.0 Profile, Personal Basis Profile, Personal Profile.
