    Hi prakashohile,

    Regarding read operations, you can examine the ImageViewer example. This example attempts to display and open image files located on the device's file system. It also works with a Series 40 SDK, by using the virtual storage system. If for example you import the project to Nokia SDK 1.1 for Java, you can copy a medium sized .jpg file to the following path:

    When launching the MIDlet, you should be able to see the saved image, listed on the Emulator and by tapping you can display it on the screen.

    You can use these system properties in order to retrieve the URL for the default directories for images, videos etc.

    For write operations and more code snippets make sure to check the FileConnection API as well as this wiki article.

    Re: File connection path

    sorry i am not clear.please give some more examples and explanation.I cant able to perform read operation.These are my read operation code

    public String file()
    InputStream is = getClass().getResourceAsStream("mytext.txt");
    System.out.println("outsream = "+is);
    StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
    int chars, i = 0;
    while ((chars = is.read()) != -1){
    sb.append((char) chars);
    return sb.toString();
    }catch (Exception e){}
    return null;

    the outsream value printed null.but in "C:\Nokia\Devices\S40_6th_Edition_SDK_FP1\bin\Storage\6700001\C\predefgallery" i have the file like mytext with few datas.

    Re: File connection path

    If the user should be able to move that file, you use the FileConnection API of JSR-75.
    If the file is read-only, you include the file in your JAR and use getClass().getResourceAsStream
    If the file is actually just some media data, you use the RecordStore API of MIDP.
