    Re: Update jar file possilble?

    On some phones, the user can update the application manually, if the application was installed via OTA (I guess the phone saves the jad url, then it compares the midlet version): the user just have to go to the application menu and check the right option.

    Otherwise, your server solution seems alright. Then if there is a new version of your application, you'll use the midp2 method, MIDlet.platformRequestion(JAD_URL), to "update" the application. Actually it reinstalls the app again, and it may ask you if you want to keep the former RMS data.

    Hi nekinpatel,

    This is what canard_42 talked about.

    Invoking Platform Services in MIDP 2.0

    Note that it is MIDlet.platformRequest and not MIDlet.platformRequestion as below

    Hope it helps
