The proposed final specification for JSR 179, Location API for J2ME, is available for public review. This specification defines an optional package for J2ME CLDC v1.1 that enables developers to write mobile location-based applications for resource-limited devices.

View the JSR from:

Here's an overview of the JSR:

This specification will define an Optional Package that will enable developers to write mobile location-based applications for resource limited devices. The purpose is to provide a compact and generic API that produces information about the device's present physical location to Java applications.

The J2ME Location API is designed as an Optional Package that can be used with many J2ME Profiles. The minimum platform assumed is the J2ME Connected, Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) v1.1.

The target is low memory devices, so the initial recommendation for the footprint of the implementation of this API is

- ROM budget max. 20 kB
- RAM budget max. 2 kB

What do you think of this JSR?
