Subject Re: Using javax.microedition.io

I think the issue is that some code in Felix needs to compile against 
j.m.i classes. Since the build uses Java 1.4, there are no j.m.i classes 
to compile against. So while Felix should not need to ship or distrbute 
the j.m.i classes it does need the some j.m.i classes to compile certain 
bundles. So j.m.i is needed the build env for Felix.

OSGi provides ee.foundation.jar which contains j.m.i class stubs from 
CDC/Foundation 1.0 and is designed to compile against. OSGi uses 
ee.foundation.jar duing compile time to resolve all j.m.i reference in the 
OSGi code base.

Hmmm, ok, got me there. Doesn't that mean that writing any application
against J2ME CLDC is not allowed.
