Hi everybody,

So, I created a small application in WTK, packaged it, and installed the jar file in my cell phone (NOKIA N72). It installs in my cellphone, but when i try to send it via bluetooth to some other device, an alert comes "Unable to send protected objects". I even tried to do this by saving the jar file as a whole in my phone's memory card, and then trying to send it, but still the same message appears...

Somebody please help me by explaining the reason for this "protected"ness and also please suggest a method to send the application via bluetooth.

Hi all,

Nokia Closed Content List (CCL) is a proprietary solution created before
OMA DRM kicked in, to prevent certain kinds of files from being
transmitted from a phone to another phone. .jar and .sis files are
included among the protected files.

Please take a look at this document to understand the big picture and
learn more about Nokia CCL:

Hope it helps,

Had another thought. It is more than likely related to DRM, Digital
Rights Management. So that you supposedly can't send pirated jar files
around to your friends.

Phone manufacturers seem to have the habit of only allowing certain file types to be sent via bluetooth (ie pictures etc.) Although being a nokia I think it should be possible, unless the carrier has messed with the phone. May be it is the jar file that is the problem and has some how been 'protected.'
Also renaming the file may not work if nokia checks more than the file name when determining the file type.
So my guess would be either the carrier has messed with the phone (they usually do to some extent.) or the file has some how been protected.

Don't know the reason for the 'protected'ness. But here's a suggestion. Rename the file that you want to send via bluetooth or IR. Eg. file.jar to file.doc and send. Once you receive it, rename it back to the .jar. hope that helped. have a good one.
