Eclipse Java ME (J2ME) Developer Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page


The MIDlets page is used to handle the inclusion of all your MIDlets in the deployed MIDlet suite Jad file.

If you selected the Add to Application Descriptor option when you created the MIDlet class, an entry is automatically made for you. If not, you must use the Add... button to include a new entry for the desired MIDlet.

MIDlets page

There are three configurable properties for each MIDlet entry:

Item Contents
Name Name of the MIDlet. If there are multiple MIDlets in your suite, when the user invokes the suite, the Java ME device will typically prompt the user for the specific MIDlet to be executed. This entry provides the name that will be shown to the user.
Icon Path to a image file within the JAR file that will be used as icon for this MIDlet.
Class The MIDlet class itself. This is the class you created derived from javax.microedition.midlet.MIDlet.

Adding new MIDlets

  1. Pressing the Add... button will create a new MIDlet entry.
