J2ME Read File


In this J2ME application, we are going to read the specified file.

This example shows you how to read the data of the specified file. To implement this type of logic we need to create a text file in the res folder of the directory. In this application we are creating a "help.txt" file and read the data of this file by the help of  j2me midlet. 






For Details you can download the source code and use it on j2me environment.
