Hi guys,
I was just wondering what happens when a midlet is minimized.

I know to minimize a midlet, the current display is set to null.

I was just wondering if the minimized midlet is still running and if can still maintain the state of its execution and hence state of its objects. For instance, if I am listening for an SMS message on port, if I minimise the midlet, will it still be listening to the SMS on the port?

If yes, if I maximize the app again, does it go to my last page to does it go to the begining of the midlet (startapp)?

By Minimize you mean, sending the MIDlet into the background. I believe you can do what you want to do when your MIDlet is in the background.

Check out this article on Sony Ericsson developer forum for more details:
