I've seen that if you specify optional properties in a MidLet whose values begin with spaces, when you try to retrieve those values using getAppProperty, leading spaces are lost !?
Does anybody know if this is a bug or I'm just missing some specification about Midlet properties ?
Thank you,

You should consider using another character than a space like an underscore (_) or something. It may well be the case the the String representing the property is trimmed before storing and the space is lost... I don't think it's a bug...

I wrote to Sun j2mewtk team. Here's the answer:
Hi,
Much like a properties file, the whitespaces between the separator (i.e.
: or = ) and the property value are ignored.

That's what I thought. The bottom line is that a space should not be used in the boundaries (before the first character and after the last character) of properties. Or if used, it will be trimmed anyway...
