Java ME dictionary resource


#1

Hey people. How possible is it for a Java ME application to have access to words and their meanings from within a dictionary resource? The application is not a mobile dictionary, but a game. I don’t want the game to have all the words of the english language. I just need the game to have A LOT of words to make the game more standard and of benefit to more people.
I searched for a dictionary resource online, but I guess my google query strings were not good enough. Any positive help will be most appreciated. Thanks

Hi Prometheus. How are you planning to use the resource? Is it as a source to check if a word is valid or not? Would a web service like this: http://services.aonaware.com/DictService/DictService.asmx be suitable?
