    In order to run Java apps on a BREW phone, you'll need a Java VM that
    runs on BREW. I believe Qualcomm ships that:
    http://www.qualcomm.com/press/releases/2001/press17.html

    According to their white paper, the J2ME extension is "either pre-loaded
    by handset manufacturers or provisioned over the air via the BREW
    Delivery System (BDS)".
    (http://brew.qualcomm.com/brew/in/about/java/white_paper_01.html)

    I suspect you'll need to go to your handset manufacturer to see if you
    have Java, and if so how to make use of it. I don't think it's available
    from IBM (although I would certainly recommend that you confirm this
    with your IBM sales rep, since I've been known to be wrong before :-)

    Hi,

    What is WEME all about then? It states that BREW is a supported platform, so I'm assuming that J9 runs on BREW?

    Is there a trial available for WEME on BREW? I didn't see one in the download section, just Windows and Linux based. So, my question is back to, is this really supported? If so, what use cases would work best in this environment?

    We have a few J2ME apps with some server-side connectivity. Not having to port these to BREW would save us a bunch of time and money, but we don't want to use J9 at the expense of performance and/or having to deal with a decent chunk of porting issues anyway.

    Anybody out there use J9 on BREW?

    Thanks!

      IBM has provided an implementation of Java on BREW to Qualcomm as far
      back as 2001:
      http://www.microjava.com/news/press?content_id=2243

      I believe you had to be a Qualcomm BREW developer in order to get access
      to it. It wasn't available for download from the IBM website. Typically
      phone manufacturers are the ones who include it on their phones.

      It sounds as if you might want to get in touch with an IBM sales
      representative to discuss your options. Depending on which BREW phones
      you're targeting, you might be able to save yourself some effort.
