    Is the Java ME 8 SDK only for Windows?

    stainsb

      I'll claim some level of ignorance up front, but with that out of the way......can I install the Java ME 8 SDK on my Mac?  All I see is the Win32 executable.

       

      Thanks,

          Hi Brent,

           

          Java ME SDK 8 EA is available only for Windows. The previous version, Java ME SDK 3.0, is available for Mac, but we just didn't see enough usage to justify maintaining a Mac port at this point. We are exploring how to support Mac in the future, along with Linux.

           

          In the meantime, the easiest way to use Java ME SDK 8 EA on a Mac is to run Windows in Oracle VirtualBox on the Mac. This is what I do and it works fine.

           

          Best,
