    OTA JAD/JAR Installation (7210 v 3650)

    Hi,

    I have a JAD/JAR that installs fine over the air to a 3650, but a 7210 complains about both the JAD and the JAR. The JAD isn't even read so I get no prompt to install the JAR.

    Is there a different requirement for the 7210 OTA installations?

    I have a WAP URL that points to the JAD.
    JAD and JAR live next to each other and, as mentioned, install fine on the 3650.

    I've tried this with a number of different java games and even a simple "Hello" test app.

    Any ideas??

    Cheers,
    M.

    Give more details. How exactly does 7210 complain?

    Below is the contents of the AlarmClock.jad file.

    MIDlet-1: AlarmClock, , org.spruce.midp.alarmclock.AlarmClock
    MIDlet-Info-URL: http://www.spruce.jp/freemidlets
    MIDlet-Jar-Size: 18019
    MIDlet-Jar-URL: AlarmClock.jar
    MIDlet-Name: Alarm Clock
    MIDlet-Vendor: Spruce Technologies
    MIDlet-Version: 1.6
    iDEN-Data-Space-Requirement: 13
    iDEN-Program-Space-Requirement: 45

    When the WAP browser on the phone points to the jad file, we get the message:
    "unknow file format"

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Are you able to load this app onto the 7210 via cable or IR? "Unknown file format" sounds like the server is not sending the correct MIME types for the download. The correct types are:

    .jad - text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor
    .jar - application/java-archive

    Maybe the 3650 is less picky?
