Dear all,

I want to develop a J2ME application that can be run on a java-enabled mobile phone. The application should be able to transfer data by using GPRS.
I will connect a hand held GPS (Global positioning system) to one mobile phone by using a laptop and the phone data cable. These data should immediately transfer to the mobile phone, which will be held on one of our base stations (by using GPRS). Normally we are using an UHF link, which is very expensive.
The problem is how to write an application that collect all the data from the data cable & transfer those collected data via GPRS. Can someone help me on this?

Cheers
Sandanuwan

Hello,
Each phone has a IP for GPRS which is unique. If you need to push the data to a mobile phone, then you have to use Push Registry and send the message as either a SMS or CBS. You can use HTTP Post but the mobile user has to check for the data from the server. Hope this helps.
