The MIDP provides a set of simple database APIs for storing information on the device. The set of APIs is called the Record Management System (RMS). The APIs include methods to create, update, search, and delete databases.
The underlying implementation of the database is left to the MIDP implementation on the device. On the Palm device, the RMS database is implemented under the covers as a Palm OS database.
In this section, we will have a look at how we use the RMS APIs to store information on the Palm device.
