Hi Dalibor:
	Thanks for your reply.
         I agree. As far as I see, Kaffe didn't release any thing related to 
CLDC which was included in CDC .  But for j2se compatibility, I see the 
result,which would definitely inspire many developers change to Kaffe.
        I don't know if we could run the whole OSGI framework on 
Kaffe,OSGI+CDC(Kaffe?) would be an interesting field .
