    6230i problem installing application OTA

    I have a problem downloading and installing an application OTA onto a 6230i. I am trying to install by going to the URL with the name of the jar file e.g. www.mysite.com/test.jar. The file downloads but the phone is putting the extension .EXT onto the file so when I try to open it I am getting an error 'File Format Not Supported'. Can anyone help?
    It is probably something obvious I am doing wrong, but it is not my phone so I am not familiar with it!

    Re: 6230i problem installing application OTA

    OTA you usually want to point device at a Jad file and if that doesnt work, then try a Jar file

    but maybe the 6230 is one of those devices where you have to have jar? it does not sound like it understands what the content type is, or does not have the appropritae content type handler entry for wap browser

    again, what happens if you visit a jad files url? does it recognize the content type, and ask if you like to install it?

    It looks like the correct Mime Type setting for both .jad and .jar files are not correctly configured on the web server.

    Re: 6230i problem installing application OTA

    oops, if that the case, you need

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

    i believe, at least for that particular virtual directory, or website

    IIS 6.0 automagically defines
    .jar application/java-archive

    but not the jad

    Re: 6230i problem installing application OTA

    Thanks. I had tried the download using the jad file, but it just opens that and displays it as text. I don't think it is the web server because I am able to download and install applications from the web server onto other phones - Nokia 6680/3650. The problem isnt that it doesnt know what the content type is - tha phone is pointed to ccc.jar and downloads a file called ccc.EXT. Maybe you are right and the web server is causing a problem for the browser on the phone, but I can't access the server to change anything unfortunately!

    Re: 6230i problem installing application OTA

    can you try downloading a jad first, from another website and server, then if that fails, try the jar

    that might help prove it is your phone and not the server

    it sounds like something similar to this is going on

    Code:
    If you want to serve file types that are not supported by the default mime.types file, you can augment that file with your own definitions. To do this, create a file called .htaccess in the directory where the files you want to serve are located. In the .htaccess file, type: 
    
    
    AddType   mime-type   .ext 
    where mime-type is the MIME type and .ext is the file name extension you intend to use for files to be associated with mime-type. You must include a period (.) before the extension. You can list several exts separated by blanks. For example, see the image/jpeg entry above. 
    If you are not sure what mime-type and .ext to use, do not create a .htaccess file. Instead, send mail to your Webmaster or to www@www.utexas.edu to ask for help. 
    
    Save the .htaccess file and store all ext files in the same directory. Then, all files in the directory that end in .ext will be mapped into mime-type and handled properly by the server.
    but i dont know why

    Re: 6230i problem installing application OTA

    the uaprof of that device or r200 of that device has the following content types

    http://nds.nokia.com/uaprof/N6230r200.xml

    Code:
      <rdf:li>text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor</rdf:li> 
      <rdf:li>application/java</rdf:li> 
      <rdf:li>application/java-archive</rdf:li> 
      <rdf:li>application/x-java-archive</rdf:li>
    maybe try changing the mime type on the server to one of these, maybe the phone is using an ext extension or something wierd for "application/java-archive" but not for "application/x-java-archive"

    oh yeah, you dont have access to webserver, sorry

    again, back to trying to download from another know site

    what happens when you go to http://google.com/glm

    can you download their app? it has intelligent jad creation, if theres installs you might look at their jad file, maybe you can figure out the discrepencies

    Re: 6230i problem installing application OTA

    Thanks Jason, I will see what I can do. Problem is I can't make changes to the server settings as it is a remote server hosting several websites. I have tried before and I cant customise the .htaccess file. I will give it a try though as I might be lucky this time!

    Yes, I feel for you, i.e. the remote server. if you can download to that device from another website, and think it might be the content type setting on web server, you might try putting a request into the company asking them to look into/change it for you.
