Introduction to Perst Lite and ProScout Example MIDlet

Perst Lite is an open source, object-oriented embedded database system for Java ME-based mobile devices. ProScout is a sample MIDlet incorporating Perst Lite that has been tested in the phoneME, Nokia S40 and S60, and Blackberry environments. ProScout is intended to help a sports recruiter perform information gathering and retrieval tasks -- taking notes on a prospect, recalling player and team statistics, etc. -- discreetly on a mobile device.

The ProScout example MIDlet is offered here with complete source code (see below)

Documentation and Binary Files

Inside the ProScout repository there are two documentation files:

  • GettingStarted describes steps to launch ProScout from within PhoneME and within the Sun Wireless Toolkit
  • PerstLiteFeatures provides commentary on the source code to explain the role of Perst Lite

The ready-to-run MIDlet files can be accessed here: jad and jar.

Perst Lite (for Java ME) is included with the Perst for Java object-oriented, open source database system provided by McObject.
