IO is well supported in J2ME. java.io is not supported under CLDC, however the RMS classes can be used for persistent storage. HTTP support is also required. See the CLDC and MIDP specs for more information.

has links to let you download the various profiles - pretty complex, but I guess this range is needed to cover the range of devices that Java is now appearing in.
