The Connected, Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) is a specification for a Java ME configuration. The CLDC is for devices with less than 512 KB or RAM available for the Java system and an intermittent (limited) network connection. It specifies a stripped-down Java virtual machine called the KVM as well as several APIs for fundamental application services. Three packages are minimalist versions of the Java SE
java.utilpackages. A fourth package,
javax.microedition.io, implements the Generic Connection Framework, a generalized API for making network connections.
