I have created a PDB file on my PC and I use the HotSync to transfer this database onto a Palm (PalmOS 3.5)
How can I access this database into a MIDlet using RMS ?
I tried out the "RecordStore.openRecordStore" and "RecordStore.listRecordStores()" but both didn't work.
Could you help me ?

MIDP does not allow access to the native libraries on a PALM.
There is a JSR (Java Specification Request) under development that will more than likely address this - PDA Profile
