Finally after almost 6 months of being on the back burner, Matka is complete.. Raaarrr! The prototype was designed to demonstrate communication between a cellphone and webserver. Matka is a J2ME application that runs on any MIDP cellphone. The application is a simulator of the Matka game where you can place a bet on any number from 0-9. The prototype basically demonstrates communication with a server running ASP and transmitting data via XML. The client application is coded with the Java Wireless Toolkit. Thrid-party XML parsers (KXML and KXML2) have both been used to demo their usage. Heres a link to the app.. [ Matka Suite ] There is a detailed Readme on how to install Matka on a device and how to setup a development system and the server. Although there are still issues the basic prototype is ready and working. Various phones have slightly different ways of handling the incoming data. There are a couple of workarounds to be implemented. But all in all its ready to send off to the engineers at GKPL..
