Also, now adays, there's even more Javas than just Java SE and Java
EE. Java SE now has three different profiles for embedded devices,
because somebody still thinks they can beat Android. (Good luck.)

Nothing to do with Android per se: it's all about IoT and Oracle trying
to position Java ME as the software platform for all connected devices
(many of which do not run Android).

Hmm, true. Although I see all of the "small embedded" markets as
essentially similar. If Oracle can make in-roads in devices even
smaller than Android, perhaps Oracle can then leverage their way into
larger devices. I think that's going to be difficult however.

I'm honestly at a loss how they expect to make money on compact
profiles, either now or later. I see compact profiles as gee-whiz
capability with no business plan. Google takes a cut of app sales on
Android -- that's a pretty solid business plan. Where's Oracle's
equivalent on smaller devices?

Traditionally companies has paid a small license fee per device
for Java ME.
