The most requested feature for RMS in MIDP 2.0 was the ability to share record stores between MIDlet suites. This was addressed by adding an access mode to class RecordStore so that the owner of the RecordStore can allow shared or private access, and can differentiate between read-only or read-write access modes. The MIDlet suite that creates the RecordStore owns it and controls access to it. Other MIDlet suites can open shared record stores by giving the MIDlet suite name and the record store name. This new functionality makes it possible to share persistent data between MIDlet suites.
