Is it possible to install application to the Blackberry handsets via browser using only jad/jar files (don't use .cod files) ?
The BB Simulator is successfully installing the application, but on real handset Install progress bar gets to about 75% and then fails. Error message says “Download failed.” Clicking the Details button gives this message:
"907 Invalid JAR output file: appname.cod data section too large: 71832 bytes."
The example of jad file that was used for downloading .jar:
MIDlet-1: APP NAME,/icon.png,AppMain
MIDlet-Name: APP NAME
MIDlet-Description: APP NAME

For #3, this limitation can apply to any type of file (jad or cod). You can work around this possible limitation by installing the application using the BlackBerry Browser or Internet Browser.
You can verify if you are experiencing #8 by converting the JAR file to a COD file using the BlackBerry JDE. If this is the cause you should see a similar error from the BlackBerry JDE when it attempts to compile the cod file. Here are the steps for how to do this.

What BlackBerry model and handheld software version are you testing on? This can be found under Options, About on the BlackBerry. What version of BlackBerry JDE are you using? If they are different versions you may see different results.
What browser are you using to install the application, BlackBerry Browser, Internet Browser or WAP Browser. You can see the default browser setting under Options (Advanced Options) Browser.
