This chapter includes these topics:

Application Model

Oracle Java Micro Edition Embedded Client supports the main and Xlet. The main application model, in which the virtual machine runs a single application. Here is a trivial example:

public class HelloWorld {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("Hello, World");
