    Assign file type to application?

    Is it possible to assign a file type to an application?

    For example;

    Midlet is a TAGA screen viewer. Code assigns '.TGA' files to application so that the application runs when the '.TGA' files are selected.

    Or, Midlet is a JPG editor. Code assigns '.jpg' files to application. When pictures are selected in gallery the JPG editor loads instead of the built in picture viewer.

    Is this possible?

    Not doable with Java, but on Symbian OS based phones you can in C++ create a so called "recognizer" to handle specific MIME/file types on the phone.
