The Hewlett-Packard Co. MicrochaiVM Java application environment, the micro edition of HP ChaiVM, enables customers to download Java applications to mobile and other devices. HP developed the MicrochaiVM for use in resource-constrained devices such as cell phones, pagers, personal digital assistants, and point-of-sale terminals. It supports the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) specification and will eventually support the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP). It has a minimum ROM requirement of 37 KB. HP will provide consulting services to help device manufacturers port and customize the MicrochaiVM software environment.
HP MicrochaiVM with CLDC is now available. HP will release MicrochaiVM with MIDP in the third quarter of 2001. http://www.hp.com
