Basically in epoc we have both C++ and Java versions.i.e I am able to run normal(J2SE) Java application on my epoc device.now, what are the advantages of midlets so that I prefer them over j2se or personal java applications.
If I am using Nokia9210 which supports java, do I need to use only midlets or normal J2SE Java application.If both which is preferable and Why?
finally,What is the uniqueness of MIDP over personal Java or J2SE in mobile devices.
Looking forward...

If you can run J2SE or even PersonalJava, use them. The only reason to use of the more limited J2ME profiles is if you want to support a wider range of devices.
