Chapter 7. MIDP Application Model

Due to the strict memory constraints and the requirement to support application interaction and data sharing within related applications, the Mobile Information Device Profile does not support the familiar Applet programming model introduced by the Java™ 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE™). Rather, MIDP introduces a new application model that is better suited for the specific needs of small, resource-constrained devices. This application model is integrated closely with the MIDP user interface libraries (see Chapters 811), and it replaces the simple, command line-oriented application model supported by the Connected, Limited Device Configuration.
