CLDC/MIDP applications conform to both the Connected Limited Device Configuration and Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP). The CLDC/MIDP stack is based on the open source phoneME™ Feature project at https://phoneme.dev.java.net.
CLDC 1.1 and MIDP 2.1
Optimized Mobile Service Architecture (MSA) stack with extensions (JSR 248)
Java Technology for the Wireless Industry (JTWI) stack (JSR 185)
All the JSRs listed in Table 1
CLDC/MIDP applications are targeted for devices that typically have the following capabilities:
A 16-bit or 32-bit processor with a clock speed of 16MHz or higher
At least 160 KB of non-volatile memory allocated for the CLDC libraries and virtual machine
At least 192 KB of total memory available for the Java platform
Low power consumption, often operating on battery power
Connectivity to some kind of network, often with a wireless, intermittent connection and limited bandwidth
Typical devices might be cellular phones, pagers, low-end personal organizers, and machine-to-machine equipment. In addition, CLDC can also be deployed in home appliances, TV set-top boxes, and point-of-sale terminals.
