For this you should take a look at WebWorks. You can find the getting started guide on that page.

In fact, here is the complete source code for the most basic WebWorks application you can create (we call these "web launchers"):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <widget xmlns=" http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets" version="184.108.40.206"> <name>devBlog</name> <content src="http://devblog.blackberry.com/"/> <access uri="*" subdomains="true"/> </widget>
This instructs the WebWorks SDK to produce a Webview container that when launched from the homescreen will immediate load the URL http://devblog.blackbery.com.
What I like to encourage developers to do, is use the above example as a starting point for understanding how the WebWorks SDK "works". The next step of creating your Web application is moving some/all of the relevant Web assets that are deployed on your remote web server "into" the local WebWorks application (so your users can interact with it even when they are offline).
Please feel free to ask questions if you need help - lots of great developers on this forum.
