Hello, I need to store a large amount of data on a memory card in files and then access it from a midlet....... I should mention I am testing this on a Palm Tungsten C and a SD memory card. The File Connection Optional Package is not available on the JVM i'm using..... So i'm trying to use the basic Connector class with a InputStream I am unable to read from any files on the memory card using the following code. InputConnection conn = null; DataInputStream dis = null; StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer(); String url = "file:///CardName/file.txt";
I cannot use the RMS packages, as I need to store the data on a memory card and it writes it to the Palms main memory and not the card.... Does anybody know how to read files from a memory card? (using j2me of course)
Without the File Connection OP, there is no standard way to do that -- the "file://" style url would cause an exception. I recall the IBM JVM for Palm has a small library that wraps most of the Palm native calls. I cannot remember its name (or its content) at this moment. But you might be able to find some thin wrapper over the native file I/O there.
