Hello:
How can you send/receive secure information in J2ME? Is there any implementation of HTTPS for any MIDP?
Thank you!
Best Regards, Luis

MIDP does not require HTTPS, only HTTP (in fact, only HTTP, not even TCP, UDP, FTP, etc). However, vendors may choose to include other protocols as part of their OE APIs, and many will. As of yet, I don't know of any vendors includng HTTPS, probably because most MIDP devices don't have the memory or processing speed (yet) to support encryption.
