Hi I want to write an app which has the following requirements:
1. I have already installed an application (say for example HelloWorld) on my device (emulator in my case).
2. I will open browser and type some data (a url), then automatically my already installed application should be invoked.
How can I do this in BlackBerry.
Can any one please guide me to this.

can you please tell me how to do this?
What I want to do is:
if I provide a link like: www.someRemoteSite.com/songs/abc.mp4,
then my own player app should be invoked.

You can create an HttpFilter so that your application is launched whenever a specific domain is accessed. The application can then supply data to the browser. The httpfilterdemo included with the BlackBerry JDE is an example of this.
Alternatively, you could create a string patter that when matched, gives the user the option to invoke your application. You can see an example here:
