On page 23 of the JTWI spec it is stated:

A compliant implementation must allow a MIDlet suite to create a minimum of 5 simultaneously running Timers. This requirement is independent of the minimum requirement specified in Section 3.2 �Minimum Application Thread Count.�



That last minimum thread count is 10.

Does this statement mean that 15 threads is the minimum or that the 5 Timers are part of the 10?

A Compliant implementation must allow a MIDlet Suite to create a minimum of 5 simultaneous Running thread which is independent of the minimum requirement for thread counts. So that means we can have a minimum of 10 Threads and ability to have 5 different running Timer Threads

I think it is wrong to say that there is 15, from the specs i can infer that a system has to have a minimum of 10 Threads and also a minimum of 5 Timers (Which are not referred to as threads), so we have 10 threads and 5 timers
