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).

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 ?
