    Default Midlet Permissions Access

    Hi, Does anybody know anything about writing java Midlets for mobile phones?

    I'm wondering if it's possible to write an app which can browse the directories on the phone's memory and also on a transflash card in the phone then copy and paste files, rename folders etc? Kinda like a mini windows explorer but without any frilly bits

    Perhaps it's already been done... if so could you let me know where I might find a compiled version of the Application. Or maybe Java does not have permission to probe the phone's storage device in this way?

    I basically need an app which can copy files from the transflash onto the phone's storage device (for user's who do not own a datcable for transferring files to the phone's storage - including myself).

    Do you have any specific phone in mind. In general, MIDP devices don't have access to the phone's file system for security reasons. Recently a JSR has been proposed and accepted that would give MIDlets access to the file system (JSR-75), but the number of devices that actually support this out on the market is very small.

    Depending on what phone you have, there might be other options.
