hi
I am developing a J2ME mobile application.
I want to protect my application from piracy.
I read articles regarding provisioning and connecting to a web serverusing midlet's install notify property.
But the above two options need GPRS connection in mobile.

How can i provide security to my application if the mobile does not have GPRS?
Any other way of preventing priacy?

Thanks a lot in advance.

By piracy do you mean that users have to own the application (pay for it) in order to use it, ie they can't make copy of that application and use it in other mobile phones?

JSR 300(Digital Rights Management) might solve your problem. but its still in nascent stages.
