Thank you for reading my post
what is difference between a CDC device and a simple java enabled mobile phone?
does CDC has more classes and enhanced JVM?

Thanks

Devices with a CDC configuration are more likely to be for example PDAs rather than Java Phones,
though it doesn't have to be that way (eg some phones have in fact a CDC config also).

But it's more precise and better to think of CDCs as devices with more computing power that CLDC devices. It does define more classes etc ...

CDC = Connected Device Configuration
CLDC = Connected Limited Device Configuration

Look up info at java.sun.com/j2me

Cheers

Also, for differences between devices you should not look only at configurations
but profiles such as MIDP or packages such as WMA.

A configuration just refers to the raw virtual machine, a profile to a set o APIs and capabilities, and packages to specific functionality (eg WMA is a SMS/MMS api).
