    App Installer

    Friends, Finally i finnished developing my first serious J2Me application,
    now i should offer it to my clients, and here's my question :
    as i saw, it so complicated to install the app on the cellphone, some phones need the nokia installer, other need to download it from the internet and some can stand only transfering it to any folder.
    i read some posts here, and know that SIS file is like an installation program/file, so how i create this file?
    and if i create it, is it enoght to pass it and run on the mobile? and it will install the software?
    is there any ready global program (not only for few devices) that can pass the software from the pc to the mobile and install it, exactly as the nokia installer?

    You do not need to wrap your MIDlet in a SIS file.
    If you place the jar and jad file on a webserver, and you have the correct MIME types defined on your server for JAD and JAR, you will be able to download your application on any phone and the phone itself knows how to install the application. You do not need to worry about that.

    Please make sure that the MIME types are correct

    “application/java-archive” for jar and “text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor” for jad
