I'm interested in creating an application for BlackBerry that uses a C/C++ API, because the company are too lazy to create a Java API for their product - but is there any way I can use cibyl to work in conjunction with a C API?
Also, does anyone know if BlackBerry has Vorbis audio support?
EDIT: Referring to: http://code.google.com/p/cibyl/

Cibyl is a programming environment and binary translator that allows compiled C programs to execute on J2ME and BlackBerry phones. Cibyl uses GCC to compile the C programs to MIPS binaries, and these are then recompiled into Java bytecode. Cibyl programs are regular compiled Java programs, and Cibyl therefore performs relatively well.
I'm looking to use a Spotify API on BlackBerry, via cibyl.

I see. Still BlackBerry is J2ME only.
If you have a C library that you want to use with the program you are talking about, then you would have to use cibyl to convert that to JAR. But then it should work once converted to a COD file (since the JAR would support J2ME and BlackBerry).
If the issue is how to use a C library with the app, that would seem more like a cibyl related issue which I have no experence with.
