Dear all,

I am Developing a j2me Application and i want to ask some questions about the the way that
the AMS(application-management software) of the Handset handles the Midlet Suite's JAD file attributes.
Lets suppose that i have a Midlet in http://myserver.com/mymidlet.jad (and http://myserver.com/mymidlet.jar).
The jad file contains an attribute named mymidletAttribute with value mymidletAttributeValue

The question is WHERE the AMS is going to store the property mymidletAttribute AND if another Midlet
(or another application) CAN access this property for example using the call mymidlet.getAppProperty("mymidletAttribute")?
what is the level of protection that AMS and j2me provides in this level?

Thank you!

This is a decision for the device vendor/ AMS provider. It is implementation-specific.

> another Midlet CAN access this property

The JAD is application-specific and is not shared between applications. The answer is no.

> what is the level of protection

Again, this is implementation-specific.
