I installed JavaME SDK 3.0.5 on top of JavaME SDK 3.0 without uninstalling it at C:\Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0.5 on Windows 7 64 bit OS using jdk1.6.0_27 x86.
The installation went fine but i am not getting any shortcuts to launch JavaME SDK 3.0.5.
No shortcut menu item for JavaME SDK launcher is available in start menu or no shortcut is available on desktop.
Menu item group in start menu is created for JavaME SDK 3.0.5. It contains
"Documentation" and "Uninstall" shortcuts only.
When i clicked "Documentation" shortcut it complains for missing index.html file.
I checked there is no toolbar folder present inside C:\Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0.5.
There used to be one for 3.0 at C:\Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\toolbar.
I do have jdk1.6.0_27 x64 installed too. Does it creates any problem?
Am i missing any installation or configuration step?
I don't have netbeans installed on my computer.
I tried again on another machine. I tried to install JavaME Platform SDK 3.0.5 on a Windows Xp 32 bit prof os using jdk 1.6.0_20.
I got the same results.
I also observed that the last screen during installation has title NetBeans IDE Installer and it has blank body.
Now i have a doubt whether JavaME Platform SDK 3.0.5 can work in standalone mode.
Is it suppose be a plugin only for netbeans ide?
If its only for netbeans ide than the installation should abort giving a proper message but in fact installation goes fine.
Yes, it complains that netbeans ide is not found but it allows user to continue and complete installation.
I expected JavaME Platform SDK 3.0.5 will work in standalone mode too like JavaME Platform SDK 3.0 but it seems i am wrong.
There is no "toolbar" folder in Java ME SDK installation dir anymore. All developer tools are moved to Netbeans plugins.
Remember, that Java ME SDK consists of two parts: emulator and developer tools.
In the given use case only emulator and other command line tools are accessible (see "bin" folder). You can run samples or your Java ME applications via command line interface.
To develop, debug and profile your applications you have to install Netbeans (6.9.1 or later, latest 7.0.1 is recommended) and Java ME SDK Tools on top of it.
You can do it either via installer (Netbeans have to be installed before you start Java ME SDK installation) or later from Netbeans Plugins manager (see Developer Guide in "docs" folder for details).
So, nothing wrong with installation in your case.
The only problem is the broken shortcut for documentation in Start menu. We will fix it soon.
