Connected Device Configuration (CDC) is an specification of Java ME that defines basic functionality that a connected device must have. It can be used in mobile phones (smartphones), car GPSs, DVR recorders or any device that connects to the Internet.

The CDC was developed under the Java Community Process (JCP) as JSR 36 (CDC 1.0) and JSR 218 (CDC 1.1).

Typically, a CDC Virtual Machines requires 2Mb RAM and 2.5Mb of ROM. It's more powerful than the CLDC configuration, most common until now in Java ME phone devices.


With CDC we can have these profiles:

  • Foundation Profile: Has a Java SE-like API and no graphical user interface.
  • Personal Profile (PP): It's the most common in mobile devices with CDC. It has full AWT and applet support.
