I'm not sure if you mean can you cause the built-in keyboard to popup on the screen or can you trap key events. The former isn't possible, the latter is -- just define a keyDown method in your Spotlet class.

Yes, i mean to ask whether a Palm user can invoke Palm Keyboard ('abc' and '123') from a J2ME/CLDC application ?? If not,how an application developed with J2ME/CLDC API's will be useful to a user,unless he is an expert in graffiti.Is there any way to handle this ?

Like I've said in other posts, you shouldn't even really be developing anything serious with the CLDC reference implementation for the Palm, you should target the MID and PDA profiles instead. However, those are definitely not Palm-specific profiles so it's not sure how you'll be able to invoke Palm-specific features from there... but avoid the CLDC reference implementation!
