Hi,
CLDC supports 2 types of security mechanisms, Low level security and application level security. The application security makes the Midlet suite to run inside a Sandbox model. Hence a midlet suite can't access any other midlet suite. So your requirement can't be facilitated.

You can try using Push Registry alarms, if the device supports it.
This basically allows scheduling in time the execution of another MIDlet in the *same* MIDlet suite ie implying they are part of the same jar.

Hi:

If a Midlet from one .jar cannot instantiate for execution a Midlet in another .jar on the same device, how does a new Midlet application get installed on a device by download, etc. when it didn't come in the initial .jar on the device? It would seem to maintain the single .jar restriction that a device must be able to add a Midlet (and all its supporting classes and resources) to the single .jar, or delete them, and update the .jar manifest accordingly. That sounds like a lot of overhead for what appears to be a common device behavior. What classes and methods in the CLDC MIDP support this manipulation?

I would appreciate an explanation of a good approach to management of dynamic content under these conditions. What specific capabilities, features, classes, and/or methods must be implemented in the device profile to accommodate dynamic applications and content?

Thanks.
