I'm interested in the use of J2ME for non-cellphone applications. Is anyone doing any of this? What hardware is out their that supports J2ME and isn't related to telephony?

I'm particularly interested in the Home Automation area.

Many PDAs and embedded devices can run J2ME.

I'm aware of the PDAs, what I'm more interested in are the embedded devices. What sort of embedded processors support J2ME? Is anyone here working on any of them?

Yes, there are a number of Java solutions for "real" embedded systems, though it requires a little digging to find them. I recomend people start with the Systronix web site and "web your way out" from there. There are other products as well, it all depends on what kind of embedded system your looking at. I have personal experience with both the JStamp and TINI products (and have looked at many others embedded Java products). If you have specific questions about capabilities, compatability, etc. I will answer the best I can. So, yes, there are a few people useing J2ME is non-phone/PDA applications.
