I m developing an mobile CLDC application and It is an SMS related application. Every character in the message is to be replaced with a string. So,

should I maintain a database table of that replacment strings which scans and replace this entry OR

should I apply through code like
if(char A found)
then replace it with some string.

I am doing this for compressing the SMS data, so if there is any technique for achieving text to text compression, please tell me.
Please help me in this problem.....

There are many techniques for compressing data, but the cldc is a remakably limited api and does not have a compression routine. For most compression, use Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW), which is the same as the java archive file compression uses, the library is available in Java - already useable.
See: Compression (Zips & JARs) Code Samples

"The differential equations that describe dynamic interactions of power generators are similar to that of the gravitational interplay among celestial bodies, which is chaotic in nature."
I agree. Here's the link:
