I checked the KVM supported API's, but couldn't find any support for Multicasting. Is there any way to do it with the available classes?
regards,

To the best of my knowledge, multicast isn't supported by any J2ME profile. The multicast J2ME solutions I've created had the multicast done on the server side. Of course, you could do it by hand on the client side, too.
Various JMS providers have small JMS clients (on the order of 50k), designed for J2ME like devices, and may include multicast support. I haven't yet actually tried using any of these solutions.
