I am now starting to play with j2me stuff on my Nokia N90. I was intending to use C++, but want the app to work on a Samsung D600 as well. Simply using Connector.open("socket://here.ya.go:111").
I've looked through these forums and seems alot of people are limited when it comes to making socket connections from their MIDlets. If the MIDlet is not signed, and not installed from a valid JAD file, then there's no luck whatsoever come time to make a socket connection.
I am using Netbeans IDE 4.1 at the moment to create the small test MIDlet and it has signing capabilities. So I used those to add the cert info to the JAD, etc.
Whenever I install on the N90 it just moans about being "Unable to verify certificate" and kills the app install. So to get the socket connection part of this, on a small personal-use MIDlet, do I need to go and flood the bank accounts of Verisign just to have socket or any other connections in a test setup?
Is there a way to have a test certificate (self signed thing) or not?
