A fully internationalized Java API for configuration information, enabling clients to access configuration information from the file system and centralized storage, in a configurable, flexible fashion.
A small set of APIs that define the basic functionality that a class of device is expected to support. Configurations are not used alone, but instead provide a foundation that profiles are built on.
The combination of package or class editions that make up a particular edition of a project or package, respectively. Project and package configurations are updated when a package or class is created, released, or deleted.
a class of information appliance
a combination of a Java virtual machine and a set of application support APIs that are shared across a class of devices
a device class
an API that is designed to provide a basis for a broad and general category of devices, all sharing similar characteristics, such as limited memory, occasional network connectivity, and low power consumption, probably running on batteries
a specification that describes a Java Virtual Machine and some set of APIs that are targeted at a specific class of device
a specific VM and its associated Java APIs and libraries
a tuple of Java se terms and states or just state
A collection of classes and properties that work together. This combination determines, at run time, the order in which factories are called and ultimately the kind of concrete classes used. This permits an application to run, without modification, in different ways (for example, with files in different file systems). The configuration can be determined by a Java command-line property, the contents of a property file, or by the ordering of .jar or .zip files in the Java CLASSPATH. Return to start of Glossary
In J2ME, a configuration defines the minimum Java runtime environment for a family of devices: the combination of a Java virtual machine (either the standard J2SE virtual machine or a much more limited version called the CLDC VM) and a core set of APIs. CDC and CLDC are configurations. See also profile, optional package.
