Hi folks, I know this has been discussed here before (I've done the searching), but I haven't found mention of this particular approach; I'm wondering what you guys think. Problem: I desparately need access to some native Symbian OS stuff from my J2ME application (Nokia MIDP2, like the 6600). If I can't make it happen, it's gotta be rewritten in C++. Egads. Now, I know that JNI is not an option, but I was wondering about socket communication via localhost. Is it possible to run a C++ server app and use the http socket classes from the J2ME application to talk to the localhost server? And is there just no way possible to make platformRequest work? As you can tell, I'm reaching that desparation stage, since rewriting this sucker in C++ is gonna set us back significantly. I'd really appreciate any info. Dean.
