Create a Hecl script. For starters, you could use the
script from the tutorial.
Use JarHack to create a new jar and accompanying jad file:
java -jar jars/JarHack.jar -hecljar jars/cldc1.1-midp2.0/Hecl.jar -destdir /tmp -name Hello -script hello.hcl
Hello.jad in the
/tmp directory, using the
It utilizes the MIDP 2.0 version of Hecl in
To run this code in the emulator:
/opt/WTK2.5.2/bin/emulator -classpath /tmp/Hello.jar Hecl
Once you've iterated through a few versions of the script, and are satisfied, you're ready to move it to your phone. Unfortunately, we can't do that for you, as there is no standard method - each phone manufacturer provides their own way. On Linux, I use the following command:
gammu nothing --nokiaaddfile Application Hecl
Another way to accomplish this is to put the jar and jad files on a web site and download them with your phone's browser.
