Hi,
reading the first 4 chapters of the book I have to notify the following error.

Configuring Apache 1.3.23 you have to add 2 lines

application/java-archive jar
text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad

otherwise you get an error running midp with -transient option

Thanks

Diego

Diego,

Thanks to you and anyone for picking up and posting any errors that you find.
We have tried hard to test and re-test all the examples, but there are bound
to be some corrections. I hope you find the text to be helpful and
informative.

Regards,
Jim

I added both these lines but still get the following error from the command
prompt when I try to run a MIDlet suite from the web server in section 4.2.9:

** Error installing suite (37): JAD did not have the correct media type. It
had text/plain

Is it me or are we going backwards with error messages?
