Dear friends, I have a little problem about MIDP application.
How can I connect my MIDP application to the database server for doing CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) ? Until now, I don't know what database server that will be used but I assume it will be MySQL. Are there any API for doing that ? Thanks for your help.
JDBC isn't part of J2ME. So there's no universal way. Even if there was, 2-tier applications are a menace, as SQL Slammer demonstrated. You can't even do JDBC in 2-tier mode from unsigned Java applets, because it's such a security issue.
You might want to investigate setting up some sort of web service. Although it's not as convenient as the brute-force approach, it's more secure - besides insulating your backend database server direct outside attacks, you can use encrypted channels (https).
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Can you provide the reference where can I use web-service for doing that ? Can I use servlet to connect to the database and using HTTP connection from my MIDP application to connect the servlet ?
