    I some handheld devices that are more powerful than a PDA but
    weaker than then weakest modern desktop. I am trying to upgrade the
    Java that is used on these devices WITHOUT doing a proper install by
    instead copying the files over to each device.
    The problem I'm having is that the current footprint that is left
    behind by Java 6 is one of ~75MB. The website said it would have only
    been 15MB but that was horribly off after the installation was
    complete. I’ve even gone through the files to delete files which will
    not be used for my application and I could only bring it down to 67MB.
    Is there a version of Java 6 that is available somewhere that is
    much smaller than this 75MB install? Or if not is there another
    version of Java period (not a downgrade) more in line with Java ME
    that can be downloaded?
    As far as ME is concerned I’ve search everywhere and couldn’t find
    a download. Thank you for your help in advance.

    Even a JRE 1.3.1 is probably around 30 MB.

    If you need to go down to around 15 MB, then I think you need
    to look at some Java ME.

    What platform ? Windows on x86 ?
