Hi ranchers,

I am writing a simple J2ME application.I want it to run on all(at least most of) the JTWI complaint mobile phones.

How to ensure that it runs all the JTWI complaint mobile phones?

Any way to achieve this?

Thought possible solution could be to test on wireless toolkit from different vendors (Sony ericsson, motorola, nokia).

OR
Test it directly on different (at least on popular modles) mobile phones.

OR

Does J2ME Polish solve the problem?

Share your thoughts.

Thanks in advance..

Hi Girish,

I am not sure about whether i am making sense here...

How about mJUnit in NetBeans...

Cant use it for your case?

DeviceAnywhere has a service that allows you to test your application on multiple devices. It will cost you though.

Hi,

According to me, it eould be better to test on the real devices, cause there is a lot of difference and constraints on a phone than in emulators.

Thanks & Regards,

I think the most you can do is develop portable code that is coherent with the JTWI specs (better read it) and test it as much as you can in as many devices of interest as possible.

Basically JTWI devices devices with mandatory MIDP 2.0+ WMA 1.1 + CLDC 1.0 support
and optional MMAPI 1.1 support, at least. WMA 2.0 and CLDC 1.1 can also be enabled instead since they are supersets of WMA 1.1/CLDC 1.0.

JTWI also enforces some requirements which are optional or do not exist in the original MIDP, WMA, or MMAPI specs. For example, in regard to MIDP, some requirements on RMS; screen resolution,JPEG image format support etc are defined by JTWI.
