The idea for my own database came from dissatisfaction with other databases available at that time. There were databases, that had a lot of useful data, but were a bit too generic. For example they listed all available sound formats, but did not mention, which protocols supported these. There were also databases, that were just filled from official specs, even if Java implementation did not support it.
At some point I would like to add database support to midlet-builder. In theory it should be possible to just tell midlet-builder to generate build for all handsets contained in database. And if midlet-engine implementation is also mature enough, it could really happen.
In current implementation I have mostly focused on data upload and simple data display. I feel, that I could have made it a bit better, but wanned to have some initial feedback. And also see, what kind of data could I expect. And where might the bottlenecks be.
At the moment SonyEricsson and Nokia support should be decent, but I did not have any other devices available during development – so, you may never know…
