Java Sun Microsystems plans to open-source its implementation of the Java ME specification and is shooting to have that done by the end of this year, Sun executives said Aug. 14. This is the first time Sun has said publicly that Java ME (Java Platform, Micro Edition) is part of its plan for open-sourcing Java.

j2me implementations are all broken in various and different ways that make deployment of non-trivial applications a nightmare. This negates the write once, run everywhere proposition.

Licenses aside, this will be an opportunity to fix the reference implementation and make for a much stronger compliance testing.
