Hi, couple of things to start with. A) I'm new to JAVA. B) I've jumped into the deep end and skipped everything to get to J2ME. C) Please be kind, my head hurts a little already.
I'm looking for some advice, perhaps a link to a tutorial about storing long strings in memory as opposed to rms.
It is my understanding that after deleting a record from the record store, that a reference is still there, although not accessible by the midlet. I would like to avoid having any "leftovers" in my application and am wondering whether or not there is a way to keep information around across several screens without commiting it to a record store.
whew, a little long winded. sorry. Thanks in advance!

hmmm...well, the recordstores are usually for persistent storage....if you just want to pass data across several screens, one way to do that would be to encapsulate your data as an object, referenced from the main midlet. other classes could then get a handle on that object via get methods from the main midlet (or the main midlet simply pases it to the classes via parameters)
if you are using MIDP, then recordstores would be the way to store data across time. large amounts of data would probably be better stored on the server...the MIdlet would simply pass it to a servlet/jsp page for storage into logfiles or a relational database such as mysql or oracle, along with a unique id that would allow it to get back the data after some time.
