No idea about ROM footprint

In section 1.3.1(Mandatory Specifications) of JTWI 1.0 Specification, it says:

The net impact in ROM footprint is no more than 200 KB. The footprint increase will be smaller if an existing native implementation can be leveraged for the new elements of MIDP 2.0.


What does it mean by 200 KB of ROM footprint? Is it kind of non-volatile memory in a device? Could anyone explain about this with an appropriate example? Thanks...

Because the tcp/ip stack is native code, generally it is a part of the OS. So midp net code can use it by KNI call. So the entity is the native code, java is just a shell, a caller. Generally the native code (library) is less than 200Kb in flash memory.
