The second version of the HelloWorld application. This version adds a command to a Displayable component and sets a command listener to listen for command activation and take some action in response to it. This J2ME example demonstrates how the Displayable defines the semantics of the command execution.

  // components.

  // The Displayable. This component is displayed on

  private final String ALERT_LABEL = "Alert Me!";
  private Alert alert;

  // Two commands added to this MIDlet's displayable.
  private Command showAlert;
  private Command sayHi;

  // The instance of the inner class that defines the
  // CommandListener for this MIDlet.

    showAlert = new Command(ALERT_LABEL,Command.SCREEN,1);
    sayHi = new Command("Say Hi", Command.SCREEN, 1);
    display = Display.getDisplay(this);

  private class MyCommandListener implements CommandListener
    public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable d)
      alert = new Alert("Button pressed",  
      "The '" + ALERT_LABEL + "' button was pressed",
        null, AlertType.INFO);
      display.setCurrent(alert, form);
