Can Mimer SQL work well on any cellphone?

Can Mimer SQL work well on any cellphone?

Can Mimer SQL work well on any cellphone?

Hi All,

    I'm new to Mimer SQL.

    Can Mimer SQL for mobile database work well on any cellphone or only work well on Symbian and PPC and SP?

    How do I set up protocol on cellphone to connect to Mimer SQL database ?

    Any tips will help me!


RE: Can Mimer SQL work well on any cellphone?

Mimer SQL distributes a number of off-the-shelf versions of their product. These are listed on their download page, along with which kind of devices supported. When speaking of cellular phones I think you have wrapped up the entire range of devices they support. At least if your "SP" is Microsoft Smartphone devices.

A few examples of device types which currently does not support a Mimer SQL server is:
- Nokia Series 40 devices.
- NTT Docomo MOAP.
- Apple iPhone.
- Sony Ericsson feature phones (non-Symbian).

On those cellular phones that support J2ME/MIDP it is possible to make applications which directly accesses a Mimer SQL server elsewhere.

No matter what kind of device you are targeting, it is difficult to provide any (brief) answer unless you provide more information about your preferred programming environment (.Net? Java? C/C++? ...).

Since no device support all programming environments equally well, I think you must start asking yourself what you want to accomplish with your application. A solution that runs *everywhere* is darned difficult to accomplish, for example Java-support is less developed on Windows Mobile based devices, and the same applies to .Net-support on most other devices. In fact, it is impossible to deploy .Net-based applications on Nokia Series 40, but is possible (at least in theory) on Series 60 devices.

   I mean that I want develop a software base on j2me with mimer sql to access local database.But I find in this condition mimer sql only can access remote database instead of local database.So I doubt if I can do the work well. I design the software to work in any kind of handset, which has an operating system or not.

   Thanks a lot.
