    File Transfer

    Hi all,

    I have a question regarding HTTP file transfer. I searched the forum as well as Google for code examples and documentations, but couldn't find any detailed example.

    I need to build a software that allows the user to view images, SMS messages, videos and phone contacts and then to send the selected information (for example and image file or a contact) to the server. I know how to list the files on the mobile phone (using FileConnection), but I have some questions regarding the client side:

    1. Using FileConnection I can list the entire filesystem. I want to limit the list to Images, SMS messages, Contacts and Videos (note it has to work on additional mobile phones besides Nokia).

    2. How do I submit the file over HTTP? The server we run here at the university is Apache and PHP. I finished the server side (couple of PHP scripts), but I don't know how to submit the information that was selected by the user.

    If you have any documented examples that you wish to share, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    "Using FileConnection I can list the entire filesystem. I want to limit the list to Images, SMS messages, Contacts and Videos (note it has to work on additional mobile phones besides Nokia)."

    I want to let the user see 'Images', 'SMS', 'Videos', 'Contacts' instead of letting him nagivate through the file system. What I mean is that when the user lauches the application, the main form contains links to the above mentioned directories. When the user clicks on Images, for example, the applicaitons displays all the images on the mobile phone.

    Hi goglog,

    I'm not sure if i got your issue right but i guess you should implement a filter yourself, just limit what can be selected by implementing this logic for your application.

    Re: File Transfer

    Hi goglog ,

    i think u have to first store all your data ina nintermidiate storage like enumaerator and then based on the extension of the required contents list only the required.That is the way u can only do it ....................

    The code u would have got as example that shows file browsing even that also stores the file in an enumerator and then displays it with the use og images and text manually.so u can limit the contents that are to be listed..

    hi,

    I want to let the user see 'Images', 'SMS', 'Videos', 'Contacts'
    images/videos can be browser with FileConnection API (JSR-75)
    Contacts with PIM Api (JSR-75)
    SMS cannot be browsed at any means at least on Nokia devices yet,

    both FileConnection/PIM has optional filter features that can be used when listing content of data (folder/contact book),

    hth,
    regards,

    Hi goglog,

    Peter is right, i missed the the "access to SMS" issue. You won't have access to SMS, the native SMS boxes are not available. However, you can access SMS in case you're not using the default port and have developed a SMS MIDlet to your overall solution, it depends on your requirement.
