Java ME SDKs and Tools: The State of the Union

This article demonstrates that Java ME developers have a wide array of choices -- in addition to the full-featured Java ME SDK (which replaces the well-known Wireless Toolkit) -- to create and test applications.

The Sun Java ME SDK 3.0, considered the de facto standard SDK when it comes to mobile application development, integrates the very popular Java Wireless Toolkit for CLDC and the Java Toolkit for CDC as a single product. It lets developers create Java ME applications for the following JVM platforms:

  • CLDC/MIDP: The common JVM configuration for hundreds of millions of mobile phones
  • CDC/FP/PBP/AGUI: The JVM configuration for high-end smart phones and other devices
  • CDC/FP/PBP/BD-J: The JVM configuration for Blu-ray Disc players

In addition to the Sun Java ME SDK 3.0, this article include details on the following offerings and then summarizes them in a handy comparison table:

  • NetBeans 6.5 IDE
  • MOTODEV Studio for Java ME
  • Nokia S60, S40, and NFC SDKs
  • BlackBerry JDE 4.7
  • Sony Ericsson SDK 2.5 for Java ME
  • LG SDK 1.2 for Java ME

The Java ME SDK Comparison Matrix table shows a list of all Java ME SDKs and tools that are evaluated in this article, with an entry for API support for each one. (Note: The NetBeans IDE supports multiple Java configurations, so its entries in this matrix apply to when it is configured with the Java ME SDK 3.0.)
