4.3 Token-based Linking

This section describes a scheme that allows downloaded software to be linked against APIs on a Java Card technology enabled device. The scheme represents referenced items as opaque tokens, instead of Unicode strings as are used in Java class files. The two basic requirements of this linking scheme are that it allows linking on the device, and that it does not require internal implementation details of APIs to be revealed to clients of those APIs. Secondary requirements are that the scheme be efficient in terms of resource use on the device, and have acceptable performance for linking. And of course, it must preserve the semantics of the Java language.
