well these are the things that i understood abt jsr 179, am posting it here so that you can correction me if i have any false assumptions,

i}The mobile device on which we wish to deploy the midlet which uses location api have to include jsr 179 i.e they should have LAPI 1.0......heres the link to some of these devices http://developers.sun.com/techtopics/mobility/device/device?api=125

ii) now just having the device is not enough to make things complicated...either your service provider should implemnt this api OR we need to use a GPS chip with the device

iii)the api provides Landmark and LandmarkStore and other classes to store location details which we can use later to map spatial data into text ....

iv}we can stode this data using RMS but we store nomal data like location name, coordinates etc. in records using RMS, now what i dont understand is where exactly we r using this Landmark and other classes i mean we r just storing the data in RMS and later mapping them so am surely missing something here.....

well i hope you will correct me whereever required
