updating the j2me appln

Hi All,

I have a j2me appln which stores the data in the rms files in my mobile
I have updateed the appln with some new changes.
Now I want that the rms data should be migrated to the new updated jar file.

Is this possible?

No I don't think so, each jar file has its own dedicated RMS memory storage area, the spec has this store isolated for security reasons.

I can imagine, the only possibility that an RMS store might be transfered to another jar would be if the cell phone implementation was specifically programmed to move the RMS over to a new jar if it recognized an update to an existing, installed MIDlet, but I don't know whether such a thing actually exists or not.
I agree. Here's the link:
