Hi all,

I created a WAP application that enables any end-user(wap user) to select a midi file among a list of midi file (or link) and then listen to it. My problem is that the browser enables to the end-user to save that midi file onto HIS phone.

How do i do in order to enable the end-user(wap user) only to listen to the midi file (the link) and to prevent from saving the midi file onto his phone.

Moved to the J2ME forum.

And OULD, how about doing everyone's eye's a favor and changing your display name to mixed case?

if I understand correctly, you have created a server-side application, and you currently access it with the device's generic wap browser.
So a possible solution could be to create your own MIDP browser which does not support saving the files, and send the media files from the server only after a specific handshake or authentification operation (to prevent other browsers from accessing it).
I agree. Here's the link:
