Re: Relation between J2ME and wml(WAP)
Thursday, June 28, 2001 10:23 AM
These two technologies are only related by the hardware platform they are typically NOT found on, both are designed for small devices. J2ME is a software platform for developing and executing Java software on devices with small amounts of resources (such as a pager or PDA). The J2ME platform includes libraries and a virtual machine (there is more than one version of each).
WAP is a protocol, it stands for Wireless Application Protocol. It is simply a standard to send data over a network. The neat thing about WAP is that it is compatible with most wireless networks (but works fine with TCP too).
