Glossary definition of Java support

Java is a object orientated programming language. It's also called a platform independent programming language, which means that the software written in Java should theoretically be able to run on every device Java is supporting.

The Java version that usually is installed on mobile phones is the so-called Java 2 Micro Edition. This Java focuses specifically on devices with a limited capacity. A Java program is also called a MIDlet, an abbreviation of Mobile Information Device and the English extension-let. MIDlet's can be recognised by their JAR extension.
