# SquirrelJME

3
**SquirrelJME** is intended to be a Java ME 8 compatible environment for
4

strange and many other devices. That is, you would be able to have a Java
environment on a wide range of _Internet of Things_ devices, older computers
(such as the _Amiga_), embedded devices, and mobile devices from old to new.
7
8
It intends to be 99.9% compatible with Java ME 8 and older J2ME standards. It
should be able to run a wide range of older J2ME software which would enable
9
10
this software to be used for archival purposes. It is written purely in Java
and requires only a Java compiler and virtual machine for it to be built.

Note that **SquirrelJME** is not a Java SE virtual machine nor does it intend
to be one at all. As such, it will not be able to run desktop software unless
it is ported to Java ME. However some programs may run since Java ME is a
subset of Java SE, so provided the desktop software does not use what is
missing or not supported it will run.

## Goals

 * _To be self-hosting_ - it can build itself while running on itself, provided

 * _To be small_ - Smaller programs are easier to maintain and are usually
   simpler.
 * _To be fast_ - With the potential of AOT/JIT, systems that do not normally
   have a port of an existing virtual machine will usually only have an
   interpreter.
 * _To be compatible_ - So that existing Java ME 8 applications can run on this
106
107
108
   virtual machine, along with J2ME applications when required. This has the
   added bonus of allowing one to use older software to catalog for
   preservation.

 * _To compile once and run anywhere_ - Current and up to date Java
   implementations are limited only to a few select systems (_Solaris_,
   _Linux_, _BSD_, _Mac OS X_, and _Windows_). Java ME 8 as of this writing
   only supports the *FRDM-K64F* and the *Raspberry Pi*. There are multitudes
   of devices that support **J2ME**, however that is horribly out of date when
   compared with the Java that is used today (**J2ME** is equal to Java 1.4
   which was released in _2002_).
