i've been reading a chapter about cryptography using BouncyCastle and the sample code shows the classs used on the J2ME and J2EE side, but i've got a .Net app for the web service side. is it possible to use these two technologies together?

if not, how about just HTTPS? is this secure enough to handle secure transactions (like a CC purchase) with a handheld app?

i'm running a http connection in a separate object/thread and need to wait for that http object to finish making it's requests before allowing my main MIDlet to proceed. the code in my main MIDlet code looks something like this:

while(oSync.isBusy()){
try{
Thread.sleep(150);
}
catch(InterruptedException e){

}
}

oSync is the http object. this should run fine, except the oSync object is giving me a 'MIDlet wants to send info. Is this okay?' confirmation window, which i can't seem to respond to, keeping isBusy() from ever returning false. how do i get around this?

my recordStore has timesheet records stored with fields delimited with "^". a sample record may look like "1^2^time entry desc^1:30^2:30^1/1/2005"

when i pull that record up for editing, i extract the data and get something like 1:30 = start time, 2:30 = end time. now i need to set the dateField inputs on the form to 1:30 and 2:30. because these values are string, and dateField's setDate() method only wants to accept date, i need to convert the strings to date, but how? casting won't work and i can't seem to find an libraries that will do the job.

any ideas?

i'm trying to get a 'best practices' feeling for how to do database style tables with rms. say i want 2 tables: users and companies. rms doesn't support traditional database tables, so how to go about storing the data in a table like structure? as far as i can see, i've got two options:

a. create 2 recordStores. each recordStore is a table that will hold user and company info.

b. put everything into 1 recordStore and delimit the tables with a special character, such as ^.

my gut feeling is that creating separate recordStores for each table i need will make the project easier to understand and help keep the code clean, but am i going to get a performance hit from opening/maintaining so many recordStores? in the scenario above, i've only got 2 tables which means 2 recordStores, but this could easily grow to 20+ tables with a more complicated project.

anybody care to share their recommendations?

i'd like the opening screen of my application to show the user a calendar view of the current month. once the user selects a date, we open a different screen with a timesheet view of that selected date. currently, the only object i've been able to find to give me a view like this is the dateField, but it doesn't seem to support any methods to initialze the calendar view by default (i.e. i have to wait for the user to click the "Select" button on their phone.) is there any way to do this?

also, can i change the default buttons that show on the calendar view from "Back" and "Save" to something else and change the action perfomed with the click. for instance, i'd like to change the "Save" button to somehting like "Select Date" and have that open the timesheet screen once clicked.

tks in advance

thanks guys, but why don't i see any PALM devices listed? what about the J9 KVM? is this just a list of the devices using the SUN KVM?

also, are any KVMs supported by Microsoft Mobile Edition?

does anybody know of a list i can look at with j2me supported devices, the runtime used, and licensing costs?
