Java Sun's starting to phase out mobile Java that's been the standard on cellphones and other small devices in favor of their standard edition, which are made for PCs everywhere. Sun VP James Gosling's reasoning for shifting everyone over to Java Standard Edition is because 'cellphones and TV set-top boxes are growing up', meaning they're getting enough processing power to handle all the demands of full-featured Java.

The J2ME, especially CLDC sucked enormously. I mean programming for JDK 1.1 these days?

No proper I/O.
No collections.

Development tools are less than optimal. (they work, but just...)

And then: CDC vs. CLDC vs. whatever else someone could come up with.

Good riddance!
