Midlet Suite is a bundle of midlets packaged together.

Is it possible to --

1. invoke MIDlet 2 from MIDlet 1
2. MIDlet 1 continues to run (even if MIDlet 1 closes, it should be ok)
3. MIDlet 2 does some work
4. MIDlet 2 invokes MIDlet 1
5. MIDlet 2 closes
6. MIDlet 1 continues to work as expected.

No, MIDlets run independently of each other and in most devices only one of them can be running at any time.

The most you can do in MIDP * 2.0 * is try to schedule a MIDlet using Push Registry alarms if the device supports PR alarms.

even if one MIDlet runs ata time, will I not be able to invoke another MIDlet from the first MIDlet ? Assuming that they are in the same MIDlet suite !
I agree. Here's the link:
