Is it possible to generate custom events in J2ME.
I need to generate some events based upon some n/w activity(eg. a byte arrives in serial port).

thanks in advance

Um, I don't think you need to make custom events for Network activity. There are Timers, Registering Sockets to the phone to activate a Servlet when a "message" comes in. And having Connections be open listening for incoming traffic.

So what would you specifically want to have a custom event for?

Thanx for the reply
I do not think timers can help me
considering the fact that my network activity is asynchronous.

Let me state the problem clearly.

I am connected to a microcontroller device throungh serial port. Depending upon some control bytes
coming in the serial port sent by tha MC, I need to initiate certain activities( this may include further network reading, server communicatin etc). I want to implement this in a callback fashion. So i thought of making some custom events specific to contorl bytes in the serial port and triggering them as they arrives. Apparently i will have listners for each of this events, that will initiate the actual work. But i do not know how this model can be implemented.

Appreciate if you could help. Any alternative model is also apreciated

thanks in advance

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
