The wireless revolution has transformed mobile communication from only voice-oriented communication with relatively static, hard-coded functionality into extensible, Internet-enabled communication with advanced data and software support. Nowadays, users expect wireless connections to be able to transfer live video and high-quality audio, as well as download significantly larger applications and services comparing to those in the past. There is a great demand for multi-functional mobile devices capable of hosting a broad range of applications for both business and consumer use. Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) offers the wireless community a standard solution on different platforms without significant changes to the system. Almost all mobile phones available on the market support the programming language Java for J2ME. In this paper, Java 2 platform and J2ME for development of mobile applications are reviewed. Current applications for mobile devices using J2ME are present and possible future mobile applications are addressed for developer to take advantages of J2ME for future mobile applications.
