Hi, I am working on
that should be very small (100-200k). I could use available libraries but their full size is not acceptable for me.
Is there a way to strip library out of unused classes? Something like linkers do in C++ (static linking)? Something that would track if class is used or not.

I think Dash-O does what you want (haven't ever used it though). There are probably others as well. You might ask in J2ME forums, since people doing J2ME are the most likely to have worried about reducing library size.

useful for shrinking libraries. More over, the website present an interesting list of alternative tools.
Hope that helps,

Have you thought of using
to explicitly load the required classes? This can greatly reduce the initial size of the Applet, but adds to the runtime overhead.
