Writing J2ME applications in Linux

If you want to make the most out of your Java-enabled handheld device, you can write Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) applications (also called midlets) on Linux and run them on your mobile platform.

Most cell phones allow you to install and run Java applications; to verify if your phone is supported, consult your documentation or search for the specs at the GSMArena Web site.
