Blackberry bold and games and applications?!

Hello, i'm just wondering how (if possible) i can transfer Java games and apps to my bold? I tried with some games i had but can't do it with roxio cause the file formats are unsupported and couldnt find a folder when i looked to transfer manually.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Blackberry bold and games and applications?!

This is possible in one of two ways:

 

1. If there is a jad/jar file for the J2ME jaa app then you can through it on a webserver and add the applicable mime types and then browse to the file using the BlackBerry Browser to install it over the air. For information on doing this see the following link:

2. If you have no webserver you can use the BlackBerry JDE to convert a jad/jar into a .cod file and then use javaloader to load the cod onto the BlackBerry. See the following links for more information on this:
