Maybe you can packet it to jar file.
And download from website you build(using http or wap).
Some cellphones need to download both jar and jad files, like Nokia.
Others mat just need jad file.

so can I enter the following in my mobile phone :
http://localhost:8080/wireless/download.html
I tried OTA in the wireless toolkit but I am really surprised if the previous URL will work in real device !!

No, obviously not. You need a real URL.

John,

Most java-enabled mobile phones come with software so they can connect to your PC. But I'd say it's fairly rare these days that a cable will also come with the phone, so you'd need an infrared or bluetooth port on your PC (and phone) to connect them and transfer the midlet to your phone. Otherwise you may need to buy an additional cable.

An easier (and cheaper) way may be to get some web space and put your jad/jar on the web so you can download it straight to your mobile via your wap browser. There are loads of companies giving free web space away (tho you may get issues with MIME type settings on some...)

Cheers,
James
