start one midlet from another

Hey everyone,

is there any possibility to start one midlet from another? I read something about a trick with <Midlet>.platformRequest() but can't find it again...

The thing is that I have a central midlet that is responsible for some database sync and several other midlets that should be able to call the central midlet when a refresh update is requested. If someone has another idea how to realize this (without copying the central midlet's code to every of the others) I would be happy.

Thanks a lot!

No can do. platformRequest can prompt to install another MIDlet, not run it.

luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
