    Nokia 5410 J2ME RFID API?

    We are working on a possible project that would use a Nokia 5410 with an RFID jacket. Does any one know about the J2ME APIs to talk with this RFID jacket?

    It seems that Nokia has some proprietary protocol for connecting to shell devices.

    "FunShell API Specification For Game Developers v1.0 en" downloadable from http://ncsp.forum.nokia.com/download/?asset_id=11928 shows that the datagram URL to connect to on FunShell covers is "lcif://GAME/joystick/1.0".

    On the other hand here on developer discussion boards there was a conversation (readable on http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...threadid=49208 address) that on GPS shells the same URL would be "lcif://GPS/control/1.0".

    Now my lucky guess would be that the RFID Reader Shell datagram URL would be "lcif://RFID/(something)/1.0" if the same rules are used as before. FunShell API says this (something) is the "feature" used.

    Personally I think Nokia should support more open standards on these cases. If anyone has any more information about how the shell works or if I'm wrong in this then he/she can correct. Of course if Nokia itself can give information about the protocol it would be nice.
