I have the J2ME application working on the emulator and some features of the J2ME app working on the Palm VIIx device. However, I coudn't get a J2ME app talk to a http server over the builtin wireless connection on the actual Palm VIIx device.
Partial code is in the following:
try {
String url = "";
} catch (Exception e ) {
t = new TextBox ("Error", e.toString(), 1024,0);
When running on the actual device, I got an IllegalArgumentException at the line :

I am desparate on this issue. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
