Apps for Android are compiled into a dalvik, machine code like format before they can be run on the device. This means that everything is compiles, and things like Java etc cannot be updated on the device - as the device doesn't actually use Java. It could be possible for malicious code to be installed into an Android app, however Google Play does check ...

The Javascript engine in Android's Browser/WebView can be either JavaScriptCore (lower end phones) or V8 (higher end phones). Chrome also uses V8. Both engines are written in C++. Javascript is never compiled to Java bytecode, instead it is interpreted and/or JIT compiled into ARM bytecode. My guess on why V8 on PC is much faster than V8 on Android is ...

The only two options I can think of, is to make a HTML5 cross-platform mobile app that will work across the spectrum, having said that, I can understand corporate environments wanting to cling on to IE to support ActiveX apps within the browser, which is leading you to think that the Java on the desktop is the same as on Android, which is not true. For the ...

Generally this is not possible as although Android-flavored java has the same syntax and semantics as typical java, it does not run on the same virtual machine (Google has its own VM that android phones all ship with and which has a different byte code format than conventional java VMs) nor does it use or have access to Oracle's java standard library. Google ...

Conclusion This is a programming error within the HTC Music app (based on the package id). The best option is to report this error to the developers using the force close dialog. More details As a programmer I recognize the nullpointer exception thrown in the HtcMusicFragment at line 8905. The package (and class name) indicate that this is an app from ...

"Why" is not a question well suited for our site, as it probably is a speculative question and such off topic (see our [FAQ]). Although, a short technical explanation: The company building your ROM decided such. "How can I disable them" would be better fitting, and even has answers: If you cannot disable them from Settings→Apps→Manage Apps, you ...

J2me Runner Netmite has probably fixed their website and since then no corrupted files have come out. I just made a UC browser cloud version from them and it works on Jelly Bean, however there's problems; the internet connection is not establishing at all, and the original apk app runner doesn't open at all. (there are two Apps in one apk.. the App Explorer ...

Although most Android apps are originally written in Java, they are then converted into Dalvik code which runs on a Dalvik Virtual Machine on the Android device. Android devices don't natively have any Java Virtual Machine installed, and can't run Java apps or applets. Someone would have to write a JVM that can run on Android and then make it available as a ...

Android still does not support Java applets, nor will it, without major work. The Java in Android isn't 'real' Java - it is a custom written version by Google. Android apps may be written in Java, but they are converted to Dalvik at compile time. As such, it would be nigh on impossible to develop a browser that has compatibility for Java Applets.

Please, contact Apogee if you are interested in a CJRE+A targeted at a an Android-running device of your choice for ...
