Testing J2ME apps without using emulators

Does anyone know if it is possible to test j2me applications without running up an emulator ?
The reason that I ask is that I'd like to use a testing framework for my j2me classes and JUnit seems the obvious choice. I don't want to have to run up an emulator to run tests because this contrasts with the "run unit tests often" ethos mandated in Extreme Programming and even if I could, JUnit uses reflection which is not supported in j2me.
If I run a JUnit test against a "j2me" class using the standard JVM, obviously things go a little haywire when calling native methods for e.g. persistant storage or networking.
Any ideas ?

I'm not sure that it is at all possible. I do know that you can come up with your own emulator, so that may be the way to go. Check out the Basic Customization Guide for more information on how to develop your own emulator.
