I installed Jalimo which is fine if you just want to run java from the 
command-line (no graphics). I use it all the time to run Saxon (XSLT) 
and it's slow but stable.

I asked about Java in Oct but only got answers about Jalimo and PhoneME. 
  Unfortunately the PhoneME distributions (including the binary pointed 
to on the page Ove suggested) don't appear to contain a program called 
"java". There is something called bin/cvm in there but I have no idea if 
this does anything useful.

It would be nice if someone could locate a java plugin for the N800 
browser. Currently a lot of web sites with java features are off-limits.
