Hi all,
Can a WMA application be run on a MIDP 1.0 Device?
My requirement is to have a SMS Listener which upon receiving
a text SMS, shall invoke a particular midlet based on the SMS
Received.
For example, if I send an SMS - "IM" to +919841028625, it will invoke a
Instant Messenger Application.
I am planning to write this SMS Listener itself as a MIdlet using WMA and
want to run it on MIDP 1.0 device.
Please clarify if I am missing something vital
Regards
Muthu

WMA does run on MIDP v1 devices (e.g. the Nokia 3300 and others). You can listen for incoming connections on those devices.
However, you cannot invoke another MIDlet within the listener MIDlet. The "wake-up" feature is possible in MIDP v2 becuase of the PUSH registry, which is not part of WMA. So, in the end of the day, the task you had described is impossible in MIDP v1.

Thanks Michael,
Meanwhile, I was able to gather something on AMS Push Registry of MIDP 2.0. Thats a wonderful stuff and opens up wide possibilities of applications on phones.
Aside, are there any devices in market which support MIDP 2.0 with Push registry? Are there any inhibitions for Device Manufacturers to adopt MIDP 2.0. This seems to have more attractive features than MIDP 1.0? I had the access to some device manufacturer product roadmaps. That does not seem to be very encouraging for MIDP 2.0 adoption. Any reasons for this?
Regards
Muthu

MIDP v2 is on every manufacturer's roadmap. Everey future Nokia and Motorola phone will be MIDP v2 enabled. There are many devices available now (or in very near future) already. Check out this list:
