JBlueLineME - Mobile Edition

Compatibility Issues

Unavoidably, the software 'JAR' file (the distributable package) is about 250 kB in size. 150 kB of this size comes from the MicroSIRIL library files alone. As a result, early versions of the software previously working on Nokia 6280 handsets stopped working when the libraries were added to the JAR file. Early versions of J2ME Virtual Machines stuck to a 50 kB file size limit. This limit has been exceed with recent versions of the virtual machine implementation, but there are still plenty of devices in use that will retain that limit. Therefore, in order to load this software onto your device, it is imperative that your Java (J2ME) Virtual Machine accepts JAR files up to 300 kB.

Even if your phone accepts the larger JAR file sizes, you may not be allowed to load this application onto your device. It may refuse to let you load applications whose origin cannot be verified via a signed certificate. Unfortunately, it costs about £400 for such a certificate to sign the application with, and this is prohibitively expensive for a private, non-commercial organisation. More likely, the service operator is protecting a revenue opportunity by only allowing applications, e.g. games, to be downloaded over-the-air (OTA) from their own offerings. This means they receive payment for both the game and any air-time used to download the game.

This application will be available for download over-the-air, but by far the most convenient way to load an application onto a device is via a USB cable. Your device ought to have come with a CD-ROM containing any necessary software to connect your device to a computer. You will have to consult your device's manual in order to transfer the application, there are simply too many different devices, connection methods, makes and models to be able to provide any support on this issue. When requesting a registration code, you are asked to confirm that you have already tried the software on your phone. The responsibility for verifying the installation remains yours.

The following table will be maintained as new information is learned. Updating the table will only be possible if customers offer that information, particularly when ordering a registration code. As a minimum, the software requires the device's version of Java to implement the CLDC-1.1 and MIDP 2.0 standards. A colour screen is highly recommended (especially for the 'Grid' view of a method), but grey scale screens will survive (but sadly these devices are likely to be too old to cope with the JAR file size requirements).

Touch HD Yes ?  
Touch Pro Yes No User supplied information for JBlueLineME Ver 1.14.0. Win Mobile 6.5, MIDP Version 2.0. JBlueLineME standard version works, though with a couple of foibles. This is a hybrid touch screen & slide out keyboard phone, so it has no hardware cursor keys. When trying to ring in portrait mode, the soft keyboard dumps itself on top of the ringing line, making it a tad difficult to see what's going on. Bizarrely, sliding the phone open to access the hardware keyboard results in a Java error pop up requiring a MIDlet restart due to the screen rotation. Once restarted though, all runs fine in landscape mode. JBlueLine Fileconn will not install it just kicks a file permissions error towards the end of the install.

I expect this to be fixed now. ? There appears to be a problem with Nokia's RecordStore implementation, which may be widely spread such as all Series 60 devices have the same problem. The problem was that exiting the application takes far too long, about 15 minutes in fact. This has been diagnosed as being due to the application saving settings on exit. The current solution is a run-time test for this device ("Platform" in the 'About' dialogue box) and then disable saving of settings. Loosing that particular convenience is the lesser of two evils. This is fixed as of version 1.8, but Nokia 6110 Navigator devices must use the unsigned installation package. OTA installation is reported not to work on the N95 device.

Please help me to compile this table by letting me know which phones or PDAs the software has been tried on and with what level of success by email to . Thanks!
