MIDlet configuration (Netbeans)

Tutorial, July 3, 2015 - 10:05am, 3519 views

This tutorial describes how you can configure your MIDlet inside Netbeans. MIDlet configuration is needed if you want to enable autostart. Java user guide on this subject says:

every MIDlet that is started automatically needs to be configured via its jad file and the following properties:

- Oracle-MIDlet-Autostart: [0-5], autostart order. 0 means no autostart. For MIDlets with the same level the order is not defined.

- Oracle-MIDlet-Restart: [true|false], if true the MIDlet is automatically restarted if it terminates non gracefully, e.g. by an uncaught exception.

- Oracle-MIDlet-Restart-Count: [number], number of allowed MIDlets restarts before the whole module is rebooted

Configuration steps:

1. Right click on your project and select properties:

1.step

2. Select Application Descriptor, then add attributes which are described above:

2. Step

Oracle-MIDlet-Autostart

Oracle-MIDlet-Restart

Oracle-MIDlet-Restart-Count

For Autostart it's recomended to set the order greater than 1 to make sure that the factory JRC MIDlet will always start first.

3. By default scfg parameter AT^SCFG="Userware/Autostart","1" if it's not 1, set it to 1. You can check your SCFG settings with AT command AT^SCFG?.  Then you just install your MIDlet, restart the module and MIDlet should autostart.

More on the subject you can read in Java user guide in chapter: 9.4.1 Switch on Autostart

Hello, my name Zeljko and I have problem with autostart of my application on BGS5T. On the picture above how can I add marked attributes? Because when I press add button there is no option Custom-Oracle-Midlet-Autostart-2?

Thanks in advanced
