by April, 10, I have posted a message concerning how to lauch a process by means of a midlet under J2Me,MIDP. I have got a response proposing to use:
platformRequest(String).
I have tested this command successfully for lauching webpages but It did not work for lauching programs such as "java myprog"
I seems that the process cannot lauch the dos prompt and therefore the application hangs at this stage. The outputted message is: Performing platformRequest for url: myprogramname.
If someone can propose a simple exemple of a midlet that only lauches myprogram, it will be nice.
Thanks for your help
