SquirrelJME is intended to be a Java ME 8 compatible environment for strange and many other devices. That is, you would be able to have a Java environment on a wide range of Internet of Things devices, older computers (such as the Amiga), embedded devices, and mobile devices from old to new. It intends to be 99.9% compatible with Java ME 8 and older J2ME standards. It should be able to run a wide range of older J2ME software which would enable this software to be used for archival purposes. It is written purely in Java and requires only a Java compiler and virtual machine for it to be built.
Note that SquirrelJME is not a Java SE virtual machine nor does it intend to be one at all. As such, it will not be able to run desktop software unless it is ported to Java ME. However some programs may run since Java ME is a subset of Java SE, so provided the desktop software does not use what is missing or not supported it will run.

- To be self-hosting - it can build itself while running on itself, provided there is a filesystem and enough memory.
- To be small - Smaller programs are easier to maintain and are usually simpler.
- To be fast - With the potential of AOT/JIT, systems that do not normally have a port of an existing virtual machine will usually only have an interpreter.
- To be compatible - So that existing Java ME 8 applications can run on this virtual machine, along with J2ME applications when required. This has the added bonus of allowing one to use older software to catalog for preservation.
- To compile once and run anywhere - Current and up to date Java implementations are limited only to a few select systems (Solaris, Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, and Windows). Java ME 8 as of this writing only supports the FRDM-K64F and the Raspberry Pi. There are multitudes of devices that support J2ME, however that is horribly out of date when compared with the Java that is used today (J2ME is equal to Java 1.4 which was released in 2002).

ALL SOURCE CODE IS WRITTEN BY MYSELF WITH FUNCTIONALITY DETERMINED BY THE DOCUMENTED APIS AND RUN-TIME BEHAVIOR. I HAVE NOT LOOKED AT THE SOURCE CODE FOR OTHER IMPLEMENTATIONS, NEITHER FREE SOFTWARE NOR PROPRIETARY IMPLEMENTATIONS. ESSENTIALLY SQUIRRELJME IS A CLEAN-ROOM IMPLEMENTATION OF THE DESIGN OF JAVA ME 8. THE IMPLEMENTATIONS OF THE JAVA ME 8 APIS AND ASSOCIATED JSRS/JEPS IS CONSIDERED BY MYSELF TO BE IN THE FAIR USE (AND IT ALSO HELPS THE JAVA ECOSYSTEM BY PERMITTING IT TO RUN IN MORE PLACES WHERE IT IS NOT SUPPORTED BY ORACLE).
THIS SOFTWARE IS INCOMPLETE AND IN ITS CURRENT STATE IS NOT CURRENTLY 100% COMPATIBLE WITH JAVA ME 8. THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO RELEASED VERSIONS OF THIS SOFTWARE. AS SUCH THE FIRST RELEASE WILL BE WHEN IT IS COMPATIBLE SO AS TO NOT VIOLATE POTENTIAL LICENSES, AND IF POSSIBLE BE VERIFIED WITH ANY APPLICABLE TCKS (SO IT WOULD BE AN "OFFICIAL" IMPLEMENTATION).
