The Java Card Platform, Version 3 consists of two editions, the Classic Edition and the Connected Edition.
- The Classic Edition is based on an evolution of the Java Card Platform, Version 2.2.2 and is backward compatible with it, targeting resource-constrained devices that solely support applet-based applications. Applets that run on the Classic Edition are referred to as classic applets. The classic applets have the same capabilities as applets in previous versions of the development kit.
- The Connected Edition contains a new architecture that enables developers to integrate smart cards within IP networks and web services architectures. The Connected Edition supports extended applets and servlets to allow for these new capabilities. In addition, the Connected Edition also supports classic applets.
The focus of this project/community Java Card - Everything You Need To Know is Connected Edition. Get to know more about the features of Connected Edition, and, Tools available to develop Java Card Applications.
