Matt;
I'm lazy. Can you bring me up to speed enough that I don't look like a fool when I mention J2ME?
As I understand it, J2ME contains just enough of the language to let you work with networked embedded systems but not enough to do typical workstation or server-side development. What packages does it contain and which ones are missing? Does it provide any tools not in the standard edition?

Hi Jerry,
I'm lazy too and I have to leave for the rest of the weekend. So let me direct you an excellent web page that expands on this. As for the packages, I stole this from that site because I'm in a hurry.
"The J2ME requires the following set of classes be present in a J2ME configuration (many of the Classes have a only a subset of the most necessary methods and fields):
-java.lang
--Object
--Runtime
--System
--Throwable
--Exception
--RuntimeException and alls of its subclasses
--Boolean
--Byte
--Character
--Integer
--Short
--Void
--String
--StringBuffer
--Math
-java.util
--BitSet
--Dictionary
--Enumeration
--Hashtable
--Vector"

Sorry about the brief answer and redirecting you but I didn't want you to go away empty handed this weekend. See everyone next week!
Best Regards,
Matt Midcap

Ok, I'm back and I'm bad! A little tired too, but back none the less.
Hey Jerry, did this and the other posts on this subject help? Let know if it made any sense, there are others who havn't even heard of J2ME and I want to make sure I'm making sense.
Thanks!
Matt
