How to access Mimer DB from an Midlet on Pocket PC?

How to access Mimer DB from an Midlet on Pocket PC?


I am a newbie, I am thinking of installing Mimer SQL on a Pocket PC device(iPAQ HP Hx4700). Can you please give me some useful tips and pointers?

Also, when I upload the database on the Pocket PC, how can I access the database from an Midlet (J2ME2.0/CLDC1.1) using IBM J9 VM?

Any kind of help, suggestions will be appreciated.


RE: How to access Mimer DB from an Midlet on Pocket PC?


To install Mimer SQL on your Pocket PC, simply install Mimer SQL Mobile on your PC with the Pocket PC connected. At the end of the installation you will be asked if you want to install Mimer SQL on the PDA as well.

You can read http://developer.mimer.se/howto/howto_41.htm about how to export a database to the PDA. Basically you create the database on you PC, create a database on the PDA and then export the database from the PC to the PDA.

You can read about Mimer SQL and MIDLETs at http://developer.mimer.se/howto/howto_43.htm. You can also read http://developer.mimer.se/howto/howto_66.htm (even though it is about Symbian the concepts are the same).
You access JDBC to access the database just as you would in any other Java envirionment. The only difference is that you import com.mimer.jdbc.*; instead of java.sql since the JDBC package is not available for MIDLETs.
