Hello,
Is there a way to create my own pdb files?
What I want to do is to implement both a desktop app and a MIDlet so that I can create/update a pdb file with the desktop app, transfer it to my Palm and read it from the MIDlet.
Is this possible?
Tnx in advance,
Tom.

No, this is not possible with standard MIDP. Standard MIDP is designed to run on many devices. Many of them do not have PDBs.
If Palm release its own MIDP implementation, it might include PalmOS specific features (such as handling PalmOS DB files). But Palm is not that interested in MIDP> It is more interested in the upcoming PDA profile.
