i am writing a midlet which access a servlet on a server. this is the first time i have wrote one and am using sun's emulator to run it but would like to try it on a MIDlet enabled mobile phone - can anybody point me in the direction of where i can get some info on downloading the MIDlet and running it on the phone from my webapp
Is it just a case of putting a link to the JAD file in a WAP page and putting that on ur server, and pointing ur phone at the URL of the WAP page. does this make it download the JAR? or do u have to put a link to the JAR in? Any help would be much appreciated Thanks in advance Matt
I put the .jad and .jar on a web server that has the MIME type "text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor" set. You can use either a page or point directly to the .jad. The .jad allows the device to discern whether the MIDlet is able to run on the device before downloading the .jar file of the MIDlet. It also allows config attributes to be supplied to the MIDlet(s) without having to modify the .jar file. hth.
