The kAWT is an implementation of Java's Abstract Windowing Toolkit (AWT) for J2ME based devices. Specifically, for devices which implement the J2ME Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC).

(Sun's reference implementation of the CLDC uses a Java Virtual Machine called the "KVM", hence the "k" in "kAWT".)

The kAWT homepage is at:

You can download the kAWT (various releases including the latest) from:

You can also browse the javadoc documentation for kAWT at:

There are a number of other J2ME tools and applications which use kAWT. These examples could help you get started more quickly. For links to all of these, and to other developers' kAWT-based apps, please visit my "J2ME Archive" at:
