Have you got the mime-types installed for the jad/jar fles :-

The MIME type for a JAR file is application/java-archive.
The MIME type for the JAD file is text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor. This specifies the default character set to use (UTF-8) to convert the JAD file from its transport format to the correct MIDP Unicode-encoding.

i do not have control over the Apache server course its just a webspace for me to host the files can i install it in my webspace ?

BigRatCommented:
No, Apache uses mime types out of its configuration directory and reads this at start up. You are going to have to talk to your system administrator to get the additional mimes installed. This is all a bit new to Apache of course, so these mimes will not yet be standard.

You are using a network which allows OTA (Over the Air downloading?) And you are sending the jad file with the correct mime type? When I point my http tester at the url

Well I got your question. The source code you attached is right no problem whatsoever. But did you check the cell phone as well. Does it support jad/jar files? has it got J2me capabilities.? Has it got support for OTA Provisionning?. Has it got downloadable applications option?
