3:1 Create Java books from Word files with Go Bible Creator (revisited)

3:2
Because many people has complaint about this topic, I came back with some improvements. First of all you have to download the following file Conversions.zip

Now, you shall have to save it somewhere on your computer and unzip it in a distinct folder. You will obtain several files:
1. txt2dat.vbs, this is the converter from .txt format to database .dat format;
2. dat2xml.vbs, this is the converter from .dat format to thml .xml format.
3. dat2txt.vbs, this is the converter from .dat format to .txt format (the reverse of txt2dat.vbs).
4. unl.dat, this is the database with the names of the books that will be used to obtain .xml format. You can open it either by wordpad, either (better) by Excel and have a sense of it, and even you can modify it if you want to convert other book than the Bible.
5. Swa2BibleWork.doc, that is a Word document used as an example containing the Swahili Union Bible.

Now, let's understand the last file (i.e. Swa2BibleWork.doc). It has the following structure (I use to say that is a pseudo-xml structure):

1. A commentary starting with "#", something like # Swahili Union Version Bible. This line will be taken as it is in the process of conversion and will not be processed.

2. A <bookID> tag, closed with </bookID>. For instance we have <bookID>1</bookID>, that means the first book from the Bible. This codification is taken from unl.dat file, and you shall see that 1 is assigned to the book of Genesis. Of course, if you deal with other book you will use another equivalence for the number 1 in the unl.dat, that can be edited with wordpad or Excel as you like (I'd rather Excel).

3. A <chapterID> tag, closed with </chapterID>. For instance we have <chapterID>1</chapterID>, that means the first chapter and so on. Till the next <bookID> tag, we suppose that you have chapters from the same book.

Each paragraph means a verse in ascending numerical order for the Bible, or a paragraph from the above mentioned chapter and will appear as they are.

Now, you have to follow the steps:

1. Edit and save your work in .doc format.

2. Open the .doc format and save using Word with Save As in .txt format. At the prompt, you shall choose Unicode UTF-8 format. You will obtain in our case Swa2BibleWork.txt.

3. Run txt2dat.vbs script. You will obtain in our case Swa2BibleWork.dat.

4. Run dat2xml.vbs script. You will obtain in our case Swa2BibleWork.xml, that is the thml file.

Now you have to use it by running the GoBible Creator software from http://gobible.jolon.org

Success!

I recommend to download PhoneMe emulator for Android from here. Especially I recommend phoneME Advanced - Foundation Profile + MIDP High Resolution b168 rev20547 from here, or from here.

Then you have to build your application, to transfer the .jar and .jad files on your mobile phone and run using this nice emulator.

1. Install a Zip Utility from Android Market.

2. Install a File Manager from Android Market.

3. Download and install PhoneMe, as mentioned above.

4. Build your application by using Download Multilingual Service or Dynamic Download (zip).

5. Copy the zip file into your Android Phone and unzip the content in a folder, and then write down the path to the unzipped files and the name of the .jad file.

6. Launch PhoneMe from your smartphone.

7. Inside PhoneMe, write to the main window the path and the name to the .jad file, above mentioned. Will look something like: file:///mnt/sd/download/BiblePhone.jad and then press enter.

8. The application will be installed, and next a hyperlink will be available below the above mentioned textbox. On this way you can install as many of MIDP application you like on your Android Phone.


How to install the application in Java Mobile enabled phones

It is possible now to have the Holy Scriptures on your mobile phone and to read it wherever you are due to the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) technology in 1.0 and 2.0 versions, developed for Java applications.

A good advice is to try in the beginning the MIDP 1.0 / 128 Kbytes version, and progressively to advance to MIDP 2.0 and larger volumes (512 Kbytes or more).

The application is available for MIDP 2.0, MIDP 1.0. You have only to select one table on the field MIDP2.0 or MIDP1.0, according to the desired Bible version. Then, you shall make a click on the JAR (Java Archive) file in order to obtain the software to be installed on your mobile phone.

I recommend you to start with STARTER(MIDP1.0old) edition, then to continue with INTERMEDIATE(MIDP1.0), and in the end, if the mobile phone supports this thing, to try to install the ADVANCED (MIDP2.0) edition. Also, start with 128 kbytes volumes, continue with 512 kbytes, and at the end try the version in one file.

There are cases where the mobile phone requires so called JAD (Java Descriptor) files. These JAD files has to be uploaded, on this case, together with the desired JAR files(s).

There are different methods to download the applications in your mobile phone as follows:
1. Directly from Internet by using a WAP or GPRS connection
2. By using the infrared port of the mobile phone
3. By wireless Bluetooth access to the mobile phone
4. By cable link between PC ad mobile phone
5. If none from the above cases are valid

Next, we shall examine each case in order to have a successfully installation of the software.


1. Directly from Internet by using a WAP or GPRS connection
 

If your have Internet access on your mobile phone (e.g. WAP or GPRS), it is enough to access https://biblephone.intercer.net/wap/  from the browser of the mobile phone, and to access the desired Bible version, and then to make an option about MIDP1.0 or MIDP2.0, and finally to select the desired module (e.g. one or more). After the last selection, the desired version will be downloaded on your mobile phone.

Many phones have only this option for installing JAVA appplications.

2. By using the infrared port of the mobile phone

Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones.

If you don't have access to Internet directly from your mobile phone, then you shall have to pass to this step requiring to have infrared ports on your mobile phone and on the computer.
a. On this case, you will download the application by using the computer from the Internet (i.e. JAR files).
b. Once the application is downloaded (preferable on the desktop) you will have to activate the infrared port on the mobile phone and align it with the infrared port of the computer (preferable laptop).

c. Then a window will appear asking what file you want to send to the mobile phone. Next, you will select the downloaded JAR file, and after OK, the mobile phone will ask you if you want to load that file. You say YES and the application will be downloaded on your mobile phone.
d. Probably, you will be asked by the mobile phone where you want to save it (e.g. on the games or applications directories). After you made this selection, the file will be ready to be loaded for run.
The displaying preference can be set inside the application in order to have larger fonts, full screen display etc.

3. By wireless Bluetooth access to the mobile phone

Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones.
This situation is similar with the infrared case. You have only to activate Bluetooth access on your mobile phone (check if exists) and on the computer (check if exists).

4. By cable link between PC ad mobile phone
Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones.
On this case the steps are as follows:

a. On this case, you will download the application by using the computer from the Internet (i.e. JAR files).
b. Once the application is downloaded (preferable on the desktop) you will have to set up the wired connection between the mobile phone and the computer. Next, you will start the synchronization / data transfer application and download the JAR file in your mobile phone. Surely, you will have to consult the CD of your mobile phone.
c. By this application you shall transfer into your mobile phone the JAR file in the games or applications directories. Next, you will have to select for run the JAR desired file.

5. If none from the above cases are valid
On this unhappy case, I recommend you to find a friend with a laptop having infrared / Bluetooth capabilities, or to buy a data link cable, or to change your current model of mobile phone.
Unfortunately, some models of mobile phones require only WAP/GPRS in order to download and run Java applications.


Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones. Therefore check the documentation of them and also the page for specific models.

Why so many versions? Simple, because not all the mobile phones support the Bible in one file with MIDP 2.0 (the most advanced for the time being).
