    Re: MIDlet policy file

    Hi,

    >>>>Midlet policy file
    R u referring to the security policy file.

    This not a necessity in all cases . It will be only required if u r signing ur application or u r using specific apis eg; fileconnection, camera, httpconnection......ie; apis that require permissions while trying to access them

    I added the permisions concering FileConnection to the jad file. I also signed the app but it didn't solved the problem.

    The Handset show an error message which says Security Java/lang/Security Exception access denied. This message is shown when the app tries to access the filesystem on a mmc.

    Hi

    While acessing the file system the phone will ask for permission if you havent sined the Midlet.Your security permissions are not set properly.

    Thanks

    Hi Ipinguin,


    R u using the phone provided by ur operator??

    is the exception thrown only while accessing the mmc or whether it is thrown while accessing the filesystem?

    even if u have signed the application, u have to manually set the fileaccess settings to "Always Allowed"

    Plz try signing provided here

    Re: MIDlet policy file

    I tried to access the mmc with System.getProoerty("fileconn.dir.memorycard");
    How do I set the fileaccess can you provide an example? I haven't found documentation on this yet.

    lpinguin, after signing your MIDlet and transfering the JAD and the JAR, were you still able to install it? Is this a real device or the Nokia Series 40 2.0 Platform SDK of the Nokia 6230i? Have you played with Nokia > Menu > Applications > Collection > Select application > your MIDlet > Options > Application access > Phone access > Read user data
    and made sure the permission is set correctly?

    Additionally, do not get confused on the link which was given by wang_shui, a Nokia Series 40 does not support self-signed certificates. However, it shows the path how to sign at all.
