Ok Matt, you defined what CDCs, and CLDCs are (http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum41/HTML/000004.html) but you missed what profiles are. Could you please explain?

Hi Mindy,
Good question. I'm going to attempt to draw a figure that will put everything together. Also see the J2ME faq on Sun's site at: http://www.java.sun.com/j2me/faq.html
Connected Limited Device Configuration
|-----------------------------------
| Uses: CLDC Core Classes
|-----------------------------------
| Handheld | Wireless | Other CLDCs <-- Profiles
|-----------------------------------
| Use the KVM or similar
|-----------------------------------

|Television| Car/vehicle | Other CDCs <-- Profiles

| Use the JVM or similar
|------------------------------------
Basically profiles are APIs tailored for a specific device. For implementation purposes, profiles will use a set of Java APIs that draw upon the services provided by the APIs that define it's configuration (CDC, CLDC).
Again, check out the FAQ and if you need further explination I will be happy to do it
Best Regards,
Matt Midcap
