Hello everyone on this nice forum,
I'm an yet small developer and I'm finishing a pretty big J2ME application targeted at 'any phone that can handle it' ;) - basically any MIDP2 mobile phone. The app is free and will be accompanying a website, actually being the strongest unique point of the website.
The app uses extensively and requires:
- HTTP connections
It uses, and is happy when a mobile phone supports:
- JSR-135 - taking pictures with the camera
- JSR-75 - File Connection, browsing directories and reading files
- JSR-205 - WMA 2.0 and sending MMSes.
Now, obviously, mobile phones ask a lot of questions when performing any of the above operations. I don't even know who to blame for it (I believe, it is up to the user to run any program they want), neither I have time for such blaming.
Question: What is the best way to go around it?
- wrap those questions with an alert saying ' when your mobile phone asks you.. say yes' etc. - this is the way I'm doing it now, I'll admit
- get / buy a certificate like Verisign, Thawte
- get Java Verified (I have to admit that the prices there just scare me off)
Again, I'm not targeting my app at any particular mobile phone, just any phone. And the mobile networks here seem not to be too restrictive, as far as I know.
I'd be happy if this started a brainstorm of ideas ;)
I've browsed the forum, and Internet about these issues, but there seems to be confusion and frustration. Let's be constructive.
thank you for any replies.
