ebay 可以移动着买. blog也需要绿化灌溉

The days of expensive wireless machines are no longer with the Wireless ePay technology. Wireless ePay works with your existing Java-based (J2ME) phone and allows merchants to process credit cards wirelessly while keeping their retail / swiped rates.     
What is Wireless ePay
Wireless ePay is USA ePay’s solution to processing transactions wirelessly with a merchant’s existing Java-based phone over any provider’s wireless network.
In the past merchants who wanted to process cards outside in the field would either have to take the card and call it into their office, take an imprint of the card and process it when they get back to the office or buy an expensive wireless unit; Wireless ePay is the solution to these problems.

移动购物 or 手机银行. 不错不错啊!

CBXSIS – a patch for creating valid Symbian SIS files

ID: 21688

Title: CBXSIS – a patch for creating valid Symbian SIS files
Terms: No Special Terms
Name: Anthony Hook email: Anonymous
URL: None
Summary: Prevents the "not compatible with your phone" error message that occurs when installing an application from a SIS file that was created automatically by C++BuilderX.
Description: CBXSIS patches a bug in C++BuilderX Mobile 1.0 and 1.5 where invalid SIS files are created. C++BuilderX saves you time and effort by automatically creating its own package file (and SIS file) whenever you do a build for the target device. However, the target device info is ommited which results in a "not compatible with your phone" error when a user attempts to install your app. CBXSIS addresses this simply by intercepting the makesis call made by C++BuilderX and injects the missing device info on-the-fly. If you’re building with the UIQ SDK then by default the application will be compatible with all UIQ devices (P800, P900, P910 etc). If you’re building with Series 60 SDK then by default your app will be compatible with all Series 60 devices. You can override this default functionality (see readme.txt).

History —————————————————-

Version 1.00 05/05/04 – initial release for C++BuilderX 1.0.

Version 1.01 17/11/04 – added support for C++BuilderX 1.5 and added P910 device option.

Prerequisites ———————————————-

1) C++BuilderX Mobile Edition v1.0 or v1.5.

2) UIQ 2.1 (WINS) SDK or Series 60 SDK.

Installation ———————————————–

1) Create a new folder called "CBXSIS" on your C: drive (i.e. C:CBXSIS).

2) Unzip and copy all files into this folder.

Project Configuration ————————————–

1) To apply CBXSIS to a project simply copy the makesis.bat file from the CBXSIS folder into your project folder (i.e. into the same folder as your .MMP file). C++BuilderX will now automatically create valid SIS files for this project when you do a build for ARMI/UREL or ARMIB/UREL.

note: To remove CBXSIS from a project simply remove the makesis.bat file from the project folder. Next time you do a build for target device CBXSIS will not be invoked.

Demonstration ———————————————-

1) Install CBXSIS and apply it to your project as described above.

2) Open your project in C++BuilderX and select the ARMI (or ARMIB) and UREL build options.

3) Select "Make Project" to compile and build your project.

4) A SIS file will be automatically created in your project folder.

5) Connect your phone to your PC.

6) Double click on the SIS file to install the application to your phone.

7) Observe that the "not compatible with your phone" error message no longer appears during installation.
