Regarding RMS
Posted: Jul 7, 2007 2:39 AM

Can you tell me the maximum RMS (Record Management System) data can be stored in mobile? What is the maximum limit of one record? and how many records I can store in mobile?

I just want to know how much data can I download in mobile from RMS?

Do reply.

Thanks and regards,

Can you answer the other questions:

- What is the maximum number of RecordStores that one MIDlet can create?
- What is the maximum number of RecordStores that can be opened at one time?


There is a limit on the size of a RecordStore, but no limit on the number of RecordStores an application can create or make use of.  The following link provides an update on the maximum RecordStore sizes.

Re: Regarding RMS

Dear Mr Sohm,


this thread is about 2 years later, and it's different max size right now, which is 512KB (CMIIW).




the max size for single RS  is 512 KB.


what i want to ask is :

how many max size that one device can have?

is it depends on internal memory of its device? can we use external memory?

for example :

if device have free internal memory about 250 MB, is it become the max size for RMS?


thank you in advance,
