Java Card Forum
The primary purpose of the Java Card Forum is to promote and develop Java as the preferred programming language for multiple-application smart cards. To maintain, improve and develop further Java Card technology the Java Card Forum is structured to integrate business and technical expertise with the main function of assisting Oracle in the delivery of "fit for purpose" Java Card API's.
