    Question using j2me to access system files on symbian-based device

    I have Nokia 5800XM which I want to use as development target platform for my college project.
    Before I start, I want to know if I can access system files and directories on my device by using Java midlet.

    Any limitations?

    Yes, you can access file System and directories on your 5800XM device using Java with then help of JSR 75 - File Connection API's.
    Limitations -
    Your Java app will not be able to access any protected system data on the device, but will allow to read only public data like Gallery, that too after popping up permissions dialog and may even require midlet code signing.
    You will not be able to read data like inbox items or call logs using the file connection APIs
    thanks,
