Why still using J2ME?

Hi all,

People may be wondering why J2ME Group instead of Java Me Group. You all must know that Sun Microsystems, due to new version of Java Platform 5, is no longer using the prefix "J2", which used to stand for Java plataform 2 (J2SE, J2EE and J2ME), in your product series. However, what I have seen, mainly for Java ME, this new acronym (Java ME or JME) is not working as expected.

You can try it out, e.g. on Google, you will have more accurate results using "J2ME" as keyword than "JME", "Java ME", "JavaME", etc. So, due to this issue, I have decided to continue using J2ME, at least for while.

See you in the next post...
