OTA download problem

I'm newbie with J2ME (started yesterday) and wondering why I can't download my Test-midlet into the OTA emulator. I'm able to run this midlet on emulator, but downloading from Tomcat-server fails even everything seems to be ok. Anyway, OTA seems to find Tomcat, but an error occurs before midlet starts (says: "Can't find Midlet suite").
Tomcat's web.xml has needed MIME-types and Jad-file includes http-URL (http://localhost/Test.jar) to Jar-file.
OTA emulator asks URL to launch the application and I assume it should be ok if I type there "http://localhost/Test.jad", but now I'm wondering that should I, instead of previous, create some html/wml-file and crete a link of "Test.jad" into it? :roll:

I solved the problem. Obviously OTA Emulator (phone) do not understand straight link to Jad-file and a link into it on WML-file (by David Price) is must:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.3//EN" http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml13.dtd">
<p><i>MIDP 1.0 MIDlets:</i></p>
<p align="center"><a href="http://localhost/Test.jad">WML-link to test</a></p>
Thanks anyway,
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
