Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
Java™ technology consists of both a programming language and a software platform. The core benefit of the Java platform is that it can run on top of several different operating systems, hiding the complexity of the device from the applications and application developers.
Nokia uses Java to provide an open application platform for developers, allowing them to create applications for devices that support the technology. A standardized platform gives wide scope for real creativity and frees the developers from dealing with the peculiarities of each different device.
