How can I read installed application's raw data?


The last time, I asked about "How I can access installed application's raw data? quote unquote, Can I read installed applications's .cod file?" ( http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/message?board.id=java_dev&message.id=7160#M7160 )

The answer was "No, there are no methods for reading the raw data of installed cod files.".

I work for security solution company. Recently, my company considering a expansion of mobile anti-virus solution to Blackberry area. Because, attacks to J2ME-based smartphone are being increased.

I tested VirusGuard of SMobile on Blackberry. VirusGuard scanning whole installed application. For example, 'net_rim_bb_application_permiss', 'net_rim_bb_docvie', .... and etc.

So, Is there any kinds of argrement for access application's .cod files? 
If not, How SMobile can access these modules?

Do I should contract to RIM as a signed application?

Signing an application does not give you access to the cod file data.  It is possible to list all modules on the device.


I can't say what this application is doing, but can verify that there are no public BlackBerry APIs that allow you to read the contents of a cod file.
