- BlackBerry® devices based on Java™
Knowledge base articles that refer to BlackBerry devices based on Java are referring to models that operate on a Java development platform. All BlackBerry devices operate on a Java platform, except for the RIM® 850 Wireless Handheld, RIM 857 Wireless Handheld, RIM 950 Wireless Handheld, and RIM 957 Wireless Handheld. These four models operate on a C++ development platform.
For more information regarding BlackBerry devices, see the BlackBerry web site.
The Java 2 Platform
What we commonly refer to as "Java" is more formally known as the Java 2 Platform. The Java 2 Platform is split into three editions: Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE), Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE), and Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME). Each edition of the platform provides a complete environment for running Java-based applications, including the Java virtual machine (VM) and runtime classes.
Java 2 Micro Edition
In J2ME, the Java runtime environment is adapted for constrained devices - devices that have limitations on what they can do when compared to standard desktop or server computers. For low-end devices, the constraints are fairly obvious: extremely limited memory, small screen sizes, alternative input methods, and slow processors. High-end devices have few, if any, of these constraints, but they can still benefit from the optimized environments and new programming interfaces that J2ME defines.
