Hi all,
I have a java application created using Netbeans 5.0, which one of the goals is to create a Midlet on the fly for deploying to a mobile device. At the moment i have a seperate project for the main program and a test one for the midlet. I want to know whats the best way for my main application to be able to create/invoke a midlet using supplied data and launch using an emulator.

Cheers

This may be a better question for the J2EE forum although I don't doubt that somebody around here has done exactly what you are asking about.

Didn't you ask this question already. I am positive I saw it before, and I had replied.

You have to understand that MIDlets and Java Applications are two different sets of APIs, meant for different things. One really shouldn't be able to "call" another.

I really question why you are writing such an application, and that there are probably better solutions.
