//0-100, which indicates the brightness of the light.
//In many implementations, there are only two levels:
//on or off(Sony Ericsson). Value 0 indicates lights off
//for monochrome displays or the minimum brightness setting
//for color displays. All other level values (1-100) are
//used for turning the lights on, possibly with different
//brightness levels, depending on the value. A larger value
//always results in either the same brightness setting as a
//lower one, or a brighter setting. For many products,

Postconditions

This MIDlet implements a simple example of controlling the light property.

Turns off the light then raises the light level from 1 to 100.
