Default How to Access File System (BB Specific APIs)

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone ..

I am trying to save/store a doc or pdf file to the local file system on a BB device. I know how to do this using persistent storage but wish to know is there any other way by which I can do this. I want to stick to the BB specific APIs (net.rim.*.*) and cannot use classes like FileConnection that fall under javax. Please help me out on this as I seem to get no clue of doing this.

Thanks,
Omi

To access file storage use FileConnection. There are no other ways.

By the way BB API is extending the standard J2ME/Java classes, so even if you want you cannot avoid all of them.

To open any connection the calss Connector is used which is part of javax.microedition.io, so...

That is a strange constraint, why can't you use FileConnection? While it is true that RIM has replace some J2ME functions with their own code, it is unlikely they would provide duplicate APIs without a very good reason.
