    E61 Wap Browser instead of Web Browser

    Hi Guys,

    Within j2me if you do a platforRequest("somsite.com"); it gives you the Wap browser, instead of the Web Browser.

    The web browser gives you the mouse and javascript support which is what we need however the wap browser doesnt.

    Does anyone know how to set something to give you the web browser?


    Cheers

    Tony

    For J2ME you're probably only going to be able to call/launch the default browser, which on all S60 3rd Edition based devices is "Services" and not the "Web" app, which is the newer S60 OSS code based browser.

    The system default you can't change either.

    From a C++ app you could by the S60 OSS browser UID call/launch it directly, though, but I suspect it won't be easy to do from a MIDlet (at least not directly, unless you also write a C++ server you talk to via IP sockets).

    That server via IP sockets you mention is the midpjni JNI implementation?

    I have been having a look at that and it seems the only way forward.

    Hi Tony,

    Yes, it seems it's what he's talking about. And AFAIK midpjni is just a wrapper for:
