    Arrow Permissions + Application Manager

    Hello there,

    As you may already know if a Midlet requires specific permissions such as javax.microedition.io.Connector.file.read the midlet wiil request permission from the user during runtime (unless its set to always allowed in Application Manager).

    Having been through a number of posts on this website I have come across the method checkPermissions() which allows the midlet to check if a specific permission is set to 'Always Allowed' within the 'Application Manager'

    I was wondering if it is possible to open the Nokia Application Manager or better still bring up the permissions for the Midlet - under the control of Nokia OS? This would avoid the user having to find the Application Manager on the Phone and then flicking though the various applications until he/she finds the one in question. All that is necessary is for the user to change the required permission(s) to 'Always Alowed'.

    - This would aim to provide a better user experience when running a Java Midlet.

    Does anyone know if this is possible on the S60 3rd FP1?
    Is it possible on a later relaese of the OS?

    Re: Permissions + Application Manager

    Hello Dharmesh,

    I was wondering if it is possible to open the Nokia Application Manager or better still bring up the permissions for the Midlet - under the control of Nokia OS?
    Unfortunately this is not possible in S60 3rd Edition devices prior to S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 and all Series 40 devices.

    Symbian devices starting from S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 support interaction mode dialog which will be shown to end-user for selecting access settings when related API is used for the very first time. More about this in Forum Nokia Java Developer's Library:
