Apps get rejected by Ovi Store on some devices - orientation issue

Hi,
Has anybody experienced the same issue? I haven't got one of the devices
yet, so I could't test it yet, but the affected devices are the N96,
n95, E66, E75, N86, 6710 Navigator, N79, etc.
The comment by Nokia is "The application does not scale in full screen
in landscape mode and the bottom part of the display is cropped." Which
is strange because the apps that I submitted usually work fine when
changing orientation (on devices like the 5800) and also on landscape
screen devices like the E71. Could it be that they complain about the
softbuttons being at the bottom instead of the right side?
Thanks!

They are very unclear and it often depends on the QA responsible.
Several LWUIT based apps made it into OVI and none of them shift the softbutton area.

I was rejected one time ago by Java Verified because of this exact issue, although I didn't use LWUIT at that time, also OVI will reject it if you keep the soft buttons at the bottom of the screen on the landscape mode.

I'm also interested in this topic - recently I converted our LWUIT
apps into desktop ones, using microemulator (in resizable skin) and
excellent tool to compile java apps to native, Excelsior JET (from
Russia by the way )): http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jet.html.
Everything went just great (There are some outstanding issues, but I
expected worse results from this plain converting)

And I reworked LWUIT to place commands on EAST part of the Form, on a
static menu bar. It would be good to commit this code to LWUIT - is it
possible?

I think the guys at the QA gather points on how much they reject apps. Just explain to them that it is not feasible in J2ME to map menu keys to the phone's orientation. I had the same issue in two different applications on ovi.

I wonder how you managed to switch between portrait and landscape modes in j2me/lwuit?

I remember someone in this forum said, no event raises when orientation changed so we can't handle such behavior in j2me.

That's a built-in behaviour of lwuit, the sizeChanged() method is called
at such an event. Just rotate a Nokia N97 or similar device (that has a
rotation sensor) and you will see that the menu bar is always at the bottom.
