So the problem is, I have the .jad and the .jar on the server, in the same folder (with a relative URL in the JAD, could that be a problem??), i can find the JAD file fine and it comes up on my Sony Ericsson T610 with download and info options, innfo shows info from the JAD, and download starts downloading it, however after a few seconds, an "Invalid Application" error shows up.
The server is IIS and has a mime type for jad & jar set up, and when I bluetooth the jar to my phone (by passing the jad) it works fine, so the game is compatible with the phone
its really bugging me, as i've searched high and low on the net and can't find a solution anywhere,
any help would be very gratefully received, thanks in advance
But just yesterday I looked and realized this.
1. My Jad file had it set to MIDP 2.0, but the phone I tried it on was not MIDP 2.0 compatible, which might be the big reason why I got the same error.
I know the Sony 610 is not MIDP 2.0 compatible.
If you are using the Game API, this is MIDP 2.0 and I don't think you will be able to load it onto a Non-compatible MIDP 2.0 phone.
But Micheal would know better.
ermmm....the JAD for the specified file says
however when bluetoothed to the phone it works fine, so it must b MIDP 1 i'd have thought?? Is it that it's MIDP 1, but the JAD tells the phone its MIDP 2 so it thinks it won't b able to handle it, cos when bluetoothing, I of course only send the .jar
I've done some J2ME in the past, but these questions are regarding setting up a deployment system using content from other content providers
is that the case for other phones as well? do all phones accept jar's without the jad's because the system I'm implementing needs to work for all phones!

From my experiences, so far so good, they all accept jars, through jad or not.
Currently, I have 24 phone types on the tested list.
Wow. Do you buy all those phones?
I wasn't positive about the jad file and the MIDP 2.0 version being a problem, it was just that I hadn't really paid attention to it, and kind of thought maybe that was the issue.
Besides the Sony T610, I had also tried to install my application on a Nokia 6800 and had the same issue.
Rosanne, have you tried installing using a Jad file on a Nokia 6600? I am thinking about getting that phone.
