Procedure
  1. Create directory <docroot>/download/midlets

  2. Add your midlets (.jar files) inside the midlets directory.

  3. Create directory <docroot>/applets

  4. Download and unzip microemulator-applet-2.0.0.tar.gz

  5. Add the following microemulator jar files inside the applets directory:
    • me-applet.jar (required)
    • minimum.jar (optional: to display minimum skin)
    • large.jar (optional: to display large skin)
    • nokiaui.jar (optional: for Nokia APIs support)
    • siemensapi.jar (optional: for Siemens APIs support)

  6. Add the following code in the HTML file:

    • To display the default skin

      For example: The HTML file is located at <docroot>/download/demo.html

      <applet code="org.microemu.applet.Main"
          width="226" height="471"
          archive="../applets/me-applet.jar,../download/midlets/your_midlet_jar">
          <param name="midlet" value="your_midlet_application_main_class" />
      </applet>


      Show midlet MobileStatus.




    • To display the minimum skin

      For example: The HTML file is located at <docroot>/download/demo.html

      <applet code="org.microemu.applet.Main"
          width="157" height="285"
          archive="../applets/me-applet.jar,../applets/minimum.jar,
          ../download/midlets/your_midlet_jar">
          <param name="midlet" value="your_midlet_application_main_class" />
          <param name="device" value="org/microemu/device/minimum/device.xml" />
      </applet>


      Show midlet MobileStatus with minimum skin.

    • To display the minimum skin with mouse and color

      <applet code="org.microemu.applet.Main"
          width="157" height="285"
          archive="../applets/me-applet.jar,../applets/minimum.jar,
          ../download/midlets/your_midlet_jar">
          <param name="midlet" value="your_midlet_application_main_class" />
          <param name="device" value="org/microemu/device/minimum/device-color.xml" />
      </applet>


      Show midlet MobileStatus with minimum color.

    • To display the large skin

      For example: The HTML file is located at <docroot>/download/demo.html

      <applet code="org.microemu.applet.Main"
          width="292" height="618"
          archive="../applets/me-applet.jar,../applets/large.jar,
          ../download/midlets/your_midlet_jar">
          <param name="midlet" value="your_midlet_application_main_class" />
          <param name="device" value="org/microemu/device/large/device.xml" />
      </applet>


      Show midlet MobileStatus with large skin.

  7. The MicroEmulator also supports Nokia APIs and Siemens APIs.
    In the example below the default skin is used. Add the following code in the HTML file:

    • Support Nokia APIs

      For example: The HTML file is located at <docroot>/download/demo.html

      <applet code="org.microemu.applet.Main"
          width="226" height="471"
          archive="../applets/me-applet.jar,../applets/nokiaui.jar
          ../download/midlets/your_midlet_jar">
          <param name="midlet" value="your_midlet_application_main_class" />
      </applet>


    • Support Siemens APIs

      For example: The HTML file is located at <docroot>/download/demo.html

      <applet code="org.microemu.applet.Main"
          width="226" height="471"
          archive="../applets/me-applet.jar,../applets/siemensapi.jar
          ../download/midlets/your_midlet_jar">
