This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
Like in a subject. Is it possible to do? It's like first midlet is started and when in finishes it's destroyed and automatically next one is started, its got using http or from local emulator's path.
Any suggestions how to do it?
I was trying Midlet.platformRequest but when I pass it jad file or jar file name as a parameter it starts a web browser and tries to download a file using it. According to api spec it should work - new midlet should be installe. Did I do something wrong?
The only requirement is to run many midlets one after another - each midlet should be in it's own midlet suite.
So, what I am saying, is that that "in itself" is the bad design. Why do you want to do this, where in the real world would this be a real requirement. You can accomplish a requirement in many ways, and one MIDlet starting another in its own MIDlet suite is not any solution to any requirement I have seen. I say look at what you really want to do, not "what is above". The only place I would have heard something as wrong as that requirement would be in a class at school.

Well, I can understand your point of view. But like I said this IS a requirement. Beceause of some memory limitations on the device that I'm using I cannot put all the midlets in one suite. Probably they will be provided using http. There is a server that provides midlet suites and device needs to get each of them, install and then ask for another. That's how it SHOULD be and I'm just asking for help how to do it. Do you get my point now? Another sollution I was thinking about is a symbian c++ application that would make calls for these midlets but i don't have any idea if it's difficult doing it or not. Do you think that this may be a better design?
Yes, i know that. But If I have all the classes in one suite I don't need them to be midlets. I need some solution to run midlets from another suite.
I believe that the security that is set up that makes it so that you can't run another MIDlet that is in a different suite.

Yes, it is a security restriction.
Besides Push Registry alarms and the use platformRequest(). I believe one can't do much else with the standard J2ME APIs, maybe the Symbian APIs with provide such a way (I am not familiar with those ...). [ March 26, 2006: Message edited by: Eduardo Marques ]

Ok, thanks for help. I'll think about another soultion. I guess the only choice I have is c++ symbian app.
