I read an article, "Secure data files embedded in MIDP applications", about tinyline.com GzipInputStream Utility. In it the author states that he had to increase the size of the applications heap size.
Is it possible to do this on a "Nokia E61/Series 60 3rd Edtion" using MIDP?There is a tradeoff for using compression: decompression inevitably increases the application's memory footprint. TinyLine does not publish the additional heap size required by the library, but from my testing, I had to increase my heap size by 35 to 40 KB. A MIDP application that originally runs on Palm Zire (2 MB) now requires 4 MB of RAM to run. This slight increase in memory footprint should not be alarming for most applications and devices, but regression testing is definitely recommended.
