Jar Application to Blackberry

Please excuse my lack of knowledge in this area, but I think I am trying to accomplish something that is not too difficult, but my lack of experience in the java arena is making it difficult.

 

I am using a low cost DVR for security camera in my retail stores. Someone has posted a java application for remote viewing the cameras via java enabled phones.

 

The remote viewer is given as a link to a Jar file:

 

http://scorpiontheater.com/Documents/CCTV.jar

 

I would like to be able to use this application on my Blackberry. However, it is my understanding that it has to be converted to a COD file. My further understanding is that in order to convert a jar file to a cod file, you need JDE and a JAD file.

 

According to some of his posts, the author of the original jar has no knowledge of JAD and COD files and no interest.

 

Is there a simple way for me to make this jar file accessable to my blackberry?

 

If I have to use JDE to convert it, is there a way for me to determine the information required for the JAD file?

 

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Jar Application to Blackberry

I was able to get to that point on my own.

 

My issue beyond that is How do I get the correct information to create a JAD file, because one does not exist for the jar file?

Re: Jar Application to Blackberry

A very important question is about the source code of your "jar". Please note that java != java mobile edition... An Java application written for SDK do not have to work in the JavaMobile(Micro)Edition [cause JavaME does not support all features of Java SDK]...

 

So before you are going to try to create a JAD, you have to check first of all if the JAR is build for JavaME.
