    Any way of calling symbian applications?

    Hello,
    I was wondering if there is any way of calling a symbian application from a j2me application.
    I mean, I have an application in j2me that I would like to have a music player, but I do not want to do it again if we have one in symbian, is there any way I could invoke the native music player of symbian?

    Thank you.

    Some apps, like the browser, you can launch with platformRequest(), but the control switches to the launched app.

    You could also write in C++ a local server app, to which you send "commands" using a local socket call, and then your C++ server does Symbian calls (such as launching apps, or whatever).

    On new Symbian devices with (JRT 2.1 onwards), you can use localapp: / nativeapp: in platform request to launch native Symbian apps, refer to http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...B925CF670.html

    Thank you very much, I think nativeapp: in platform request will work. The problem I find now is how can I get a list of the names of the native apps?
    For example, what if I want to launch the music player being inside "all songs" or just the music player without a song to let the user choose it, would that be "platformRequest("nativeapp:application-exe=MediaPlayer.exe"); ?, this does not work for me.
