The Sun Java Wireless Toolkit (WTK; formerly known as Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (JavaME) Wireless Toolkit) is a state-of-the-art toolbox for developing wireless applications that are based on JavaME's Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) and Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP), and designed to run on cell phones, mainstream personal digital assistants, and other small mobile devices. The toolkit includes the emulation environments, performance optimization and tuning features, documentation, and examples that developers need to bring efficient and successful wireless applications to market quickly.

The J2ME Wireless Toolkit is a comprehensive set of tools for building MIDP applications. The toolkit can be used standalone, or incorporated into many popular integrated development environments (IDEs).

The Sun J2ME Wireless Toolkit supports the development of Java applications that run on devices such as cellular phones, two-way pagers, and palmtops.

The project was founded and led by Dov Zandman from the Sun Microsystems team in Sun Israel Development Center in the year 2000. The developers of the first version were Daniel Blaukopf, in charge of the internals and Amir Uval on the User Interface.

Sun Java Platform Micro Edition Software Development Kit 3.0 is the latest edition. Java ME Platform SDK for Windows is a state-of-the-art toolbox for developing mobile applications. It integrates CLDC, CDC, and Blu-ray Disc Java (BD-J) technology into one SDK, and replaces Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 and Java Toolkit 1.0 for CDC. In other words, the "Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2" has once again been incorporated into the MicroEdition.
