Dear all,

Is it possible to do auto update in j2me. For example, when the user run the application, it connects to server to see if there is new version available. If yes, than first step is to inform the user with popup or alarm. The first step is not a problem. The second step is if the user click "update", for ex, than the midlet automatically download and run the new version? is it possible to do the second step automatically or the user have to go to the website and dload the new version manually ? Have you seen in practice any midlet that is able to do auto update like this ?

Best regards.

See here on the use of MIDlet.platformRequest()

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

"If the URL points to a MIDlet suite's JAD or JAR file, for example http://www.j2medeveloper.com/ota/basicpush.jad, the platform request is for download and installation of the MIDlet suite, using the platform's normal installation process."

It should work for MIDlet update.
See also the MIDP Javadocs.

Cheers
