How to load J2ME applications to the IDEN handsets
By: Emiley J. in J2ME Tutorials on 2006-12-17
Update: This article is too old and is no longer valid as the iDEN networks andd the related developer portals are no longer in use as it was replaced by other networks in recent years.
The iDEN developers have always faced the problem in loading the J2ME application to their iDEN handsets. Until late 2006 there have been restrictions on how many handsets a developer can use to upload applications. Motorola also had an authentication mechanism by which the developer had to get the local iDEN network provider's permission to use the iDEN web jal application loader. It all has changed.
NOW, Motorola has opened up these JALs to the developer community. There is no restriction or authentication any more. You just have to download the JAL application from below links and you can start using them already.
Personally I feel that this should have happened long ago. But it is better late than never. So here are the links. Based on which is your target phone you can download the appropriate loader.
iDEN Open Java Application Loader
The new Open JAL tool allows developers to download local and network-aware applications to all iDEN Java-enabled handsets. This new version removes all access restrictions and supersedes previous versions of this tool. The Open WebJAL tool will work on all iDEN-network handsets.
iDEN Open Java Application Loader for Dual-Mode Handsets
The new Open WebJAL tool allows developers to download local and network-aware applications to all iDEN Java-Enabled handsets. This new version removes all access restrictions and supersedes previous versions of this tool. The Open WebJAL tool will work with the dual-mode ic402 and ic502.
iDEN Open Java Application Loader for Smartphone
The new Open JAL tool allows developers to download local and network-aware applications to all iDEN Java-Enabled handsets. This new version removes all access restrictions and supersedes previous versions of this tool. The Open WebJAL for smartphone will work with the iDEN i930/i920 smartphones.
