I came across one question. Which editions are required to develop a small application to run on mobile phones. Which editions are required to do that?

The answer they have given is : J2SE and J2ME

I don't understand why J2SE is required here. Any help?

Well, J2ME is a self-contained, micro-device development environment. If the application only used a handheld, only J2ME is required.

Quite often those questions involve a micro device, and some wording that indicates the data submitted by the micro-device will be read or used by a desktop application, which then precipitates the need for J2SE.
