Netbeans IDE:

1) Right click the project and select the 'application descriptor' tab.
2) Goto midlets tab and you'll see the midlets added
3) There you can find a column called icon. you need to give the path for the image file to be used as icon for each midlet

2) Goto midlets tab and edit the midlet
3) Now give the file name with foldername in the icon textbox

Thank you codetiger, you are great...
i just would like to note a small difference for the Netbeans 5.5.1:

1) Right click the project and select the 'Properties' tab.
2) Goto 'MIDlets' tab under 'Application Descriptor' and you'll see the midlets added
3) There you can find a column called icon. you need to give the path for the image file to be used as icon for each midlet

Thank you again.
