Select your preferred way to display the comments and click "Save settings" to activate your changes.

Use UIManager.getInstance().getLookAndFeel().setReverseSoftButtons(true)

If you are not happy with the q/w, o/p mapping you can use
Display.getInstance().setSoftkeyCodes(int left, int right, int clear,
int back) to override the default keys.
