Hi all,
I have developed a mobile program which can be used to search for the employes of my company. I have tested it with the Nokia 60 series phone simulator, it's working perfectly in simulator. Now I have got the permission to deploy it in real servers for the company use. This is my first major project of this nature and bacuse of that I have some questions which I have to clear out before I start.
1) My program transmits the names of the employees to the phone, so do I have to restrict from the server the number of bytes(names)that I send to the phone? Why Im asking is this, as I know the memory which the phones have is very much small. So there is a possiblity of a memory overflow.
2) Do I have to create different programs for different phone series, the targeted phone types are Nokia, Samsung, PDAs, Seimens etc.
3) I need to keep track of the people who are using it, so is there a mechanism where I can embbed a unique key for each and every download.
Thank you very much in advance.

#1: You should really test the app on real phones (not just emulators) before you deploy it. The S60 phones have fairly large memory but some people might use small phones that have tiny memory.

#2: See #1. Yes, you normally need to optimize it for every device series you deploy to unless the app is simple.

#3: You can force people to register a username and login before download your JAR.
