    In case if any one missed: Here is a quick link to "Known Issues In The Nokia 6600 MIDP 2.0 Implementation v1.7" explained much in detail with possible solutions/work arounds.

    Re: Known Issues

    Hi All,

    I am facing a strange problem in Nokia 6600. I have created a simple form with a datefield. The form is being displayed fine. But when I change the GMT offset (+0.00 to -6.00 or any negative offset), the application is crashed. By debugging I came to know that it crashes at the constructor of DateField.

    This behaviour is only specific to this phone model. I have tested it on various 6600 phones but it has same behaviour. This thing doesn't occure in any other phone(Nokia 6260, 3230, Sony Ericsson k750i).

    Please advice.
    Thanks.

    Re: Known Issues

    Concerning 6230i, and may be some other devices that i don't know.

    the bluetooth connexion may not deliver all the data at once. Reading through the Stream may not let you get the whole data ina single shot, even if your buffer is not filled.
    One solution is to know the size of the data you are expecting, but in any case, give the bluetooth stack a some time and make several reads separated by a little time, until you read nothing or you are sure that you have all you need.

    Re: Known Issues

    Hi All

    I have developed an application that works fine on 6681,3250.
    But when I tested this application on 6131 it does not work.

    My application connects to server(aspx page) and writes the content on mobile phone's local memory.This part is not working on 6131.

    Any comments???????
    Cheers,
    Manan

    Re: Known Issues

    When reporting known issues, try to give information to the fields listed below. Indicate the technology and platform/device, and write at least an overview of the known issue. Give a solution/workaround if you can.

    Technology:
    Reported against: (Platform/Devices/SW version)
    Subject:
    Detailed description:

    See the following examples:

    Resources cannot be prefetched after deallocation

    Using Bluetooth serial port in MIDlets

    Reinstallation problem in early SW builds on devices compliant with S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 1

    Canceling the installation of an application fails on the Nokia 6600

    Using authorization requires authentication in Bluetooth security manager

    Browser Control interface stops working after delete/reconstruct

    Re: Known Issues

    MananW, did you get an exception? Remember that the available directories on diifferent phone platforms are different. You should not use hard coded directory names, but get the accessible directores from the system as described in these documents.

    Re: Known Issues

    Hi,
    I am not able to reproduce this issue, but some users have this problem:

    They download and install the application correctly. After that, they start the application and they see:

    Application error - KNIEXT_NewGlobal Ref failed

    This happened only on Nokia S40 3rd edition - in particular 6111, 7370 and 6280.

    Any idea?

    Luca

    Re: Known Issues

    Luca,
    About the "KNIEXT_NewGlobal Ref failed" error.
    Is your midlet using network connections? It looks like some earlier application left some connections in a bad state, and hence your midlet is not able to open any network connections. This problem should be corrected by turning the phone off and removing the battery for a while (a minute or so)

    platformrequest("tel:... does not work on 6280

    We were able to isolate a problem that appeared first on a Nokia 6280 and possibly exists on some other phones, too.

    once a platformrequest is performed with a telephone number and the application will shortly after this exit, the phone number will not be called.

    the calling screen appears for some instances, then the applciation just exits.

    to reproduce the problem, create a blank midlet, place a platformrequest in the startApp method and call notifyDestroyed directly after this.

    interestingly, it works if the midlet is part of a midlet suite with 1+ midlets. then the app does not seem to be destroyed immediately and the call goes through.

    a workaroudn is to call Thread.sleep(2000) after the platformrequest. Then the native implementation seems to have enough time to make the call happen.

    ---

    here the code of the test midlet that does not place a call on nokia 6280. note that the boolean return is false!

    import javax.microedition.lcdui.Alert;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.Display;
    import javax.microedition.midlet.MIDlet;


    public class Dummy6280 extends MIDlet {


    public Dummy6280(){

    }


    public void startApp() {
    boolean possibleWithoutEnding = false;
    try{
    possibleWithoutEnding = platformRequest("tel:+491723844659"); // dial the phonenumber.
    }catch(Exception e){}

    Alert alert = new Alert ("check");

    if (possibleWithoutEnding)
    {

    alert.setString("The MIDlet suite must exit before the call can be invoked!");

    }
    else
    {
    alert.setString("Call can be invoked from within the app!");
    }

    alert.setTimeout (Alert.FOREVER);
    Display.getDisplay(this).setCurrent(alert);

    }

    public void pauseApp() {

    }

    public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional) {

    }

    }



    if you place a sleep after the request, it should work
    possibleWithoutEnding = platformRequest("tel:+491723844659"); // dial the phonenumber.
    Thread.sleep(2000)
    (plus add throw/catch)

    On which phones is this likely to be the same? On 6680 it worked fine without the workaround.

    Cheers\
    Sven

    Re: platformrequest("tel:... does not work on 6280

    Hansamann, I have been notified on this issue by another developer two months ago, but for some reason I did not finalize the known issue doc on this. Sorry for that.
    In any case you could use a following workaround for this:
    instead of just calling notifyDestroyed();

    try using this code for 6280 (the sleep period is not "scientifically decided", you could try using different values in there...)

    try {
    Thread.sleep(3000);
    } catch (InterruptedException ex) {
    ex.printStackTrace();
    }
    notifyDestroyed();

    Does this solve your issue?

    Re: Known Issues

    Thank you guys for starting discussion on this topic. This has been really useful for me so far. With limited handset availability, I always had hard time convincing my clients about application compatibility across various platforms.

    As far as I can see there are some compatibility issues across nokia platforms themselves. It may not be the right place to ask this question, but how do you guys find the MIDlet compatibility on other platforms like RIM, brew, pam, winMob etc ?

    I'm aware that this is Nokia forum and I'm probably asking an off space question. I'd appreciate any if you guys could help - I understand otherwise

    thanks

    S60 3Ed: App. closed: lcdui crash

    On my Nokia 5500 while removing Items from a Form which is currently on screen the vm sometimes crashes and gives the following error message: App. closed: lcdui.

    Haven't looked into exactly how to reproduce it yet but it seems to happen consistently if you remove two items from the form one being the current item.

    Anyone else experienced this?
