CLDC framework, do not support JDBC APIS. To connect to databases from devices that have CLDC configuration, you can call a Servlet from MIDLets. Connection to database, running the queries and other functionalities need to be implemented in the Servlet. Passing the parameters to servlet like username, password can be done from MIDLets.

The example below takes database name, username and password from MIDlet running on the J2ME device and passes it to the Servlet. The status of connection is passed to MIDlet:
