You may have great desire to run some specific java programs in your Palm OS device. Well, this news is very old but very useful for those who wants Java emulator for their Palm OS.

Java Virtual Machine Micro Environment by IBM WebSphere allows your Palm OS to run Java applications easily. Since, Palm OS is not an ordinary OS, its smarter than any other Cell Phone OS.

This tool actually allows you to convert Jar/Jad files to prc format, so that you can easily use Java based applications in your Palm device.

What can I do from this tool? I can run Opera Mini, Morange, Ebuddy, Games, and many more.

Before January 12, 2008 Palm used to distribute this JVM with License. But Palm no longer has rights to distribute the IBM WebSphere Micro Environment Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to their customers. Therefore it is nearly impossible to find this application over the internet. We are providing this download here for your convenience as we’ve downloaded it years ago and had a backup of it.
