Java MIDlet applications are designed to run on resource-constrained devices, phones, PDAs, intelligent appliances, etc. A MIDlet (in J2ME) is similar to a Java Applet (in J2SE), but more specialized, efficient, and optimized for embedded devices with limited resources.
MIDlets support graphics, animation, multimedia, touchscreen, networking, persistent data storage, and much more.
