I have an application developed using BlackBerry JDE4.0.2 and it works fine in all BlackBerry devices.
Now i have plan to do make this compatible for BlackBerry Storm.
Please let me know, if it's possible for me to make my current Java code to be compatible for Storm.
If it's not the possible, please advice me on how to start developing applications for BlackBerry storm.
Many thanks in advance.

Download the JDE 4.7 beta from the developers site. It has a Storm simulator bundled in.
Most apps will "run" without modifications, but you will have to address usability issues (like: things are too small to touch, etc).

I have tried to load COD file of my application into Storm simulator, but it does not respond.
So now i am downloading JDE4.7.
Why does my COD not loading into Storm simulator?

I am facing a similar scenerio - I have an existing application (4.3.0) that I need to tweak for the Storm. My application does run fine in the simulator, and I was able to add a simple "hack" to check for changes of device orientation (by comparing the screen dimensions from the last paint to the dimensions from the current paint).
However I need to respond to the touchscreen. I can already detect the "click" event. Now I need to know the X, Y coordinate of the event, as well as detect "touch" events.
Is it possible to receive those notifications through the older APIs? If not, if I build an application under 4.7.0 is it backwards compatible? If I use APIs specific to the Storm related to the touchscreen can my application still run on older devices?

In order to use the new touch screen APIs, you'll need to build the application with the version 4.7.0 (or higher) BlackBerry JDE. Applications built in the version 4.7.0 BlackBerry JDE would require BlackBerry handheld software version 4.7.0 or higher.
What Is - Appropriate version of the BlackBerry JDE
