What’s New In MIDP 3.0 ? Part 35: AutoStart MIDlets

Filed under: Java, JME, MIDlets, MIDP, MIDP3 — Tags: , , , , , — Simon Lewis @ 8:54 am

An AutoStart MIDlet is any MIDlet which has been declared with a type of autostart at installation time.

An AutoStart MIDlet is started automatically at device start-up, and re-started automatically should it terminate, subject to resource limitations.

To declare a MIDlet as an AutoStart MIDlet the MIDlet Suite must have been granted the AutoStart permission. The default MIDP3 security policy does not permit MIDlet Suites bound to the Identified Third-Party protection domain or the Unidentified Third-Party protection domain to have this permission. By default therefore, only manufacturers and operators are going to be able to take advantage of the AutoStart MIDlet feature.
