Example: Here Maps Component Demos

The HERE Maps API for Java ME is a set of programming interfaces, allowing you to develop mobile device applications based on HERE Maps. The API which has been integrated as a plug-in into the Asha SDK 1.0 provides mapping, search, and routing functionality and targets devices that support the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) for Java Micro Edition, such as Nokia Asha and Series 40 devices. Furthermore, although these demos have been written to be used with the latest Asha Platform, they are fully backwards compatible with older series 40 phones.

You need the following to develop and test this MIDlet:

  • Nokia IDE for Java ME (Eclipse) or NetBeans with Java ME support

  • Nokia Asha SDK 1.0 or a Series 40 SDK

  • • A Nokia Asha software platform 1.0, or a Series 40 device with support for Java Technology (JSR) 139 Connected, Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) 1.1 and Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) 2.0, JSR 118.

For instructions on how to get started with Java ME, see Getting started.


  • Design on information about the design and functionality of the MIDlet.

  • Implementation for information about implementing the MIDlet.

You can download the project files for the MIDlet from the download page.
