Hi, I am trying to save an audio file in a directory. The mobile has Symbian OS. I want to know if there is any way to save the file either using J2ME API or Nokia Symbian API. Please suggest, Thanks, Arathi
In Nokia's Symbian 'Series 60' phones (Nokia 7650, 3650, 3600, 6600, 3620, 3660 & N-Gage mobile game deck) there's no way for MIDlets to save to the native file system. (They can save data to MIDP 'record stores' which of course are implemented using the native file system, but that doesn't give you open access to the native file system). This capability will become available in future phones through the JSR-75 File API, but that's not implemented in the phones available today. On the other hand, Symbian C++ programs running on those phones are able to access the local file system. I assume these are the phones you're asking about. The 'communicator' phones (Nokia 9210, 9290, 9210i) have a different version of Java, 'Personal Java', with different capabilities. I expect (but don't know for sure, I'd have to check) that you can access the local file system from Personal Java applications on those phones. [ December 01, 2003: Message edited by: David Price ]
GCF is the "Generic Connection Framework". But I do not think you can access the "file system" using "file://" style URL on most devices. The "file://" style URL may be supported on some devices but it certainly not required by the MIDP.
