Talk:Storing user preferences in Java ME

Hamishwillee - Thanks!

Hi Spyridon

Thanks for the article. I've given it a quick subedit, mostly to be a bit more clear about what it offers - for example if you haven't actually tested this on Nokia Asha (have you?) best not to mark it as working (though I'm sure it would). Instead I've added the platform for the listed device. Please check you're OK with the changes.

At first I wasn't sure about this article - we have quite a lot of articles on RMS in Category:Files/Data on Java ME. I was also wondering if this is a more or less "defacto" way for people to save preferences, or just the way you like to do it? If its the defacto way then the title may be OK, however if there really are lots of good ways then perhaps a more generic title that reflects the particular way used. On a similar note, this really is good for any key-value storing, so that could be reflected in the title.

Some ideas:

  • "How to store key-value pairs in Java ME" (note Java ME is official name of platform now days).
  • "How to store key-value pairs using RMS in Java ME"
  • "Storing app settings using key-value pairs in Java ME"

Thanks again, nicely written.

Hamishwillee - Actually, on closer inspection

See Storing user preferences in J2ME

On quick scan both articles use very similar fundamental approach and my comment above could similarly be applied. What I prefer about your article is that it pulls out the "important" code for storing key-value into its own classes and explains them - while the other is fairly monolithic and not as reusable.

Normally I would recommend the articles be merged. Not sure right approach in this case. Might be best to make the other one "Pre" asha - then make this "post asha". Alternatively might be best to make this all about "key value" pairs, then update the other article to have a note that this article offers a better approach.

Hamishwillee - Can we also get the example file uploaded here...

To the site. In the past people have added great code, which has been lost when their personal sites were shut down.

Spiretos -

I tried to upload it but it says "This file might be corrupt, or have the wrong extension." The file is fine though...

Also, how can I change the title?

Hamishwillee - Changing title


See the drop down near the "eye" symbol at top right of page? This should have the option "Move" for moving the page.

With respect to the zip file, this is failing due to ".class" files in the zip (no idea why). If these are not needed, remove and re-upload?
