This is what he told me (I'll explain it all afterwards):
<suite> is the name of the MIDlet suite and can be obtained from the
MIDlet-Name line in the jad file.
<vendor> is the name of the MIDlet vendor and can be obtained from the
MIDlet-Vendor line in the jad file.
<name> is the name of the MIDlet and can be obtained from the first
parameter to the relevant MIDlet-<n> line in the jad file.
the shortcut to the manager program is \windows\jmm.exe, so a specific link would be \windows\jmm.exe -r"<suite>","<vendor>","<name>"
To find all of the information you need, you need the .jar or .jad file on your computer.
1. Open the .jar(.jad) file with winrar or 7zip or other unzipping program
2. Open the META-INF folder
3. Open the MANIFEST.MF file with a document viewer, I used wordpad.
Here's what google local gave me: I've bolded what you need to know
MIDlet-Name: Google Local
Created-By: 1.5.0_04-b05 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.6.2
MIDlet-1: Google Local, GoogleMapsIcon.png, com.google.googlenav.Googl
4. Create a shortcut to the java manager(\windows\jmm.exe) on your ppc and open it for editing. I used Total Commander for this.
5. Remember that the shortcut has to be in -r"<MIDlet-1>","<MIDlet-Vendor>","<MIDlet-name>", so here, the full path should be \Windows\jmm.exe -r"Google Local","Google","Google Local"
6. Now you can link that to a button or put it in a launcher. When activated, the link will open the manager first, then the midlet.
Opera mini is \Windows\jmm.exe -r"Opera Mini","Opera Software ASA","Opera Mini"
I dont know how to link icons, so if someone could help me with that, I'd appreciate it. Now, all the links have the MIDlet manager icon.
I'd also love to hear what other cool midlets people are using.
