    Re: Save data into a JAD file:NetBeans IDE 6.8 J2ME Development Guide


    I can see you have a nice collection to start with there, so you might
    want to extend it with the following material:

    There is a Java Developer's Library within our Web Developer's Library.

    You can find it behind this link:


    It can be either downloaded or viewed online.

    It's a good place to start with Midlet development on Nokia devices,
    containing both Eclipse and NetBeans IDE's.

    For especially the NetBeans environment, there is an excellent wiki
    article that will give an overview of the features of NetBeans for
    creating mobile Java™ applications and also provides a simple
    introduction to creating a mobile Java application.

    Link to the article is here:


    I also suggest the NetBeans website tutorials and documentation provided


    What comes to the JAD file, it is automatically created with the project.
    You can find it in the project file directory.



    There would be the following files:
    \lib (subdir)


    Example contents for mymidlet.jad:

    MIDlet-1: Midlet, , Midlet
    MIDlet-Jar-Size: 4239
    MIDlet-Jar-URL: mymidlet.jar
    MIDlet-Name: mymidlet
    MIDlet-Vendor: Vendor
    MIDlet-Version: 1.0
    MicroEdition-Configuration: CLDC-1.1
    MicroEdition-Profile: MIDP-2.0

    This file is editable by any text editor.

    The Flow Designer part of the NetBeans IDE is a graphical, high-level representation
    of the application's flow - the relationships between the different screens in the MIDlet,
    including the state transitions that start and stop the MIDlet. The NetBeans IDE generates
    most of the code for you, so it's a very simple and convenient way to develop the
    application's user interface.

    This and more should be explained in more detail behind the linked material, as it is not
    simply possible to go thru it in just one post...

    Please let me know if you need help in creating your application. You can also contact
    me via private messaging or send me and e-mail to marko.lumivuori@nokia.com

    Hope this helps!

    Best Regards,
