The majority of recent Java implementations have been focused on speed. There are, however, a large number of consumer and industrial devices and embedded systems that would benefit from a small Java implementation supporting the full bytecode set and dynamic class loading. In this report we describe the design and implementation of the Spotless system, which is based on a new Java virtual machine developed at Sun Labs and targeted specifically at small devices such as personal organizers, cellular telephones, and pagers. We also discuss a set of basic class libraries we developed that supports small applications, and describe the version of the Spotless system that runs on the Palm Connected Organizer.
