Yes, you can use MIDlet.platformRequest().
This method may allow you to install and/or update a MIDlet.

See this article
http://developers.sun.com/techtopics/mobility/midp/ttips/platformRequest/index.html

and the javadoc for javax.microedition.midlet .

I think it is not a mandatory requirement that this works on all MIDP devices though.

See also the MIDP docs for MIDlet update and OTA provisioning issues.
