JAVA very WIP for Dingux

JAVA on Dingux (trial version), ported by rookie1

Grab it from the link in the original post (provided you have no problem with the Chinese language) or here:

Translation of the original post here.
This is the SUN PHONEME CDC + MIDPATH that I ported to Dingux. Extract it to LOCAL folder. The compatibility of English games seems to be better than Chinese. It is suggested to download and play JAVA games of NokiaE 6X or E7 or above, due to the 320 X 240 screen resolution of A320.
It you want to get it on DMENU, edit menu_game.cfg and add in:

MenuItem MIDPATH
{
Icon = "res/games/arkanoid.png"
Name = " MIDPATH"
Executable = "./suite-manager.sh"
WorkDir = "/usr/local/midpath/bin"
}

Note: I used the icon of arkanoid here, you may change it to whatever favorite icon of yours.
Copy your JAVA games to LOCAL/MIDPATH/MIDLETS/, all JAR and JAD files will be listed in MIDPATH, you will need to use "Install MIDlet..." option to generate JAD files for games do not come with a JAR file.
Key mapping (A320 VS Cellphone):
A = SELECT
Y = LEFT
X = RIGHT
B = 5
SELECT = #
You can modify the key mapping in local/midpath/configuration/com/sun/midp/configuration/configuration.cfg (scroll down to the bottom of the configuration file and you will find it).
Some remarks:
1. In this version, you will need to exit the games by using the exit menu of their own (exiting games from program menu is not yet there). In case the system freezes, use START + SELECT + POWER (reset shortcut of Dingux) to reset your device.
2. No sound support yet. (if you are asked to enable sound at game start, please choose no)
3. It is suggested to play games of 320 x 240 resolutions (vertical screens).
  You can find configuration.cfg file under local/midpath/configuration/com/sun/midp/configuration, this is the configuration file for MIDPATH. You may choose to rename configuration.cfg.240x320 (vertical) or configuration.cfg.320x240 (horizontal) in the same folder to configuration.cfg to replace the original configuration file.
Key mapping for vertical screen (A320 VS Cellphone)
A = SELECT,X = LEFT,B = RIGHT,Y = 5,SELECT = #
