Run Java Applications on Android Phone

Java-and-AndroidWant to play your favorite java based games (or any jar/jad application) on your new Android Phone? The Android app called Android J2ME MIDP Runner lets you right away port your existing J2ME [jar/jad] applications to Android package (apk) without source code.

To install Andorid J2ME MIDP Runner to your phone, download the app (andme-signed.apk) from here and run:

adb shell chmod 777 /data/dalvik-cache
adb install C:?<PATH TO YOUR DOWNLOADED andme.apk>?andme-signed.apk
[Detailed information here]

The online solution for converting jar files to apk file is much simpler than the above method. Enter here and select an option to convert jar/jad files into android (apk) package. You can either give URL of a Jad file or upload the downloaded jar/jad file for conversion.
