Sharing data between MIDlets

Is it possible to read data from the record store of another MIDlet. The midlet that created the record store uses


recordStore = RecordStore.openRecordStore( "rsStore", true, RecordStore.AUTHMODE_ANY, true );


 and the midlet that is trying to read the record store uses


recordStore = RecordStore.openRecordStore( "rsStore", "Vendor", "MIDletName" );


The RecordStore api says that you can do this but from searching the old forum there is word that yo can't. Can blackberry confirm this and also provide a workaround

Re: Sharing data between MIDlets

Applications in the same MIDlet suite are able to share data within a RecordStore. 


An alternative approach is to use the BlackBerry RuntimeStore.  This allows data to be shared with any application.
