Does the MIDlet.platformRequest() method handle multiple request?

I believe that it MAY or MAY NOT handle it. It depends on the device support or not? Any comments?

Hi ,

It could handle multiple requests if you keep making the request from the MIDlet. The method returns a boolean value if the MIDlet has to be shut down before the request can be processed.

In case of Series 60 the MIDlet does not need to be shut down. I make 2 different requests. The first one opens the web browser and then when the user navigates back to the MIDlet that is still open they can launch another URL.
