    Hi,
    Through programmaticlly ? No You can't access the path. The Ams Will hide all your RMS.

    Hi mahesh,
    I guess you can not watch/see the rms file..if you are talking about the device..however you can look and see the rms file in case of the emulators..

    You have a bed luck this time,
    Thanks,
    Thanks with Regards,

    Re: RMS path

    Atleast there might be a path where the rms files might be saved is this path different for all midlets or same if it is different then this task becomes impossible but if all rms is saved at same path then it might be possible to read them.


    thnks

    Mahesh,
    I guess is that the RMS path would be same but in that path AMS creates the different data bases for the different installed applications,Might be I am wrong..if yes please apologizes me.

    Is this make sense,?

    Rms is a secure way of storing data. It stores data in Midlet suite so it will not be possible for all the application.

    Hi Mahesh,
    Reading the data from file is ok,
    But tell me dont ultimately you required the data??
    whether you first read the file and then data..or just data directly,

    I personally like that user need data - provide the same ----
    Its less matter from where data is coming...is this make a sense?
    Thanks
    Thanks with Regards,

    Re: RMS path

    Hi all

    thnks for reply,


    I have planned the application to be like this

    at start up a list is displayed which contains names of all rms files on phone and memory

    then user selects any name from the list, then a form or will be displayed which will show the contents of that file.

    thnks

    Hi,
    One more thing is that what user will do of the RMS file...most of the user must not be aware of about the RMS file..even they can be surprise that what it is displayed..therefore just draw the data directly..will be understandable..

    Hope this make sense,
    Thanks,

    Re: RMS path

    well because u can only access the RMS of ur own midlet/suite, u can programmatically keep track of the created RMS instances, and just go through them and show the content onscreen...
    If u'd like (as a developer) to see ALL RMS instances on the mobile then afaik thats just not feasable, simply because ur midlet wont have access outside the RMS instances of ur own midlet/suite...

    Re: RMS path

    Many devices do not give you access to the file system.

    Also, the format for RMS data files is undocumented, and is not identical for all devices.

    There are two ways for a developer to look at RMS data in a "debug" kind of way:

    1. Use an emulator (you can probably find the RMS files for these, though the format will not be not documented).

    2. Create an "RMS Viewer" midlet, that can be placed in the same JAR as the application you want to debug. It will have access to all the same record stores as the main application. Record stores are not private to a midlet, they are private to a midlet suite (JAR file).
