Dear specleads, experts,
I did look a little bit closer at the new class "NetworkInterface" and would like to ask for some clarification how this class is supposed to work and how it is supposed to be used by a midlet.
As the documentation states: "In most cases, applications will need to use only the AccessPoint API to select to connect and disconnect AccessPoints connections. The NetworkInterface APIs are needed in cases where more detailed management of connections is required."
What could this "detailed management" be ? The class does not offer any new ("exciting") methods which give additional functionality to AccessPoint ? Or am I missing something ?
Also the example seems a bit confusing to me, as it looks for "unused" NetworkInterfaces to connect an AccessPoint. Why does it need to be used ?
Can you please give a real live example where it makes sense to have the NetworkInterface class.
