The JDE's provide at least one GPS demo but IIRC it references a server component that is a bit confusing
and doesn't illustrate GPS functionality. I think you are looking for LocationProvider but the demo is something obvious
like "GPSDemo". Note that you need a location provider- either a literal GPS system or cell tower based info
( or your own pseudo-lites for a home brew system). Carriers should make their policies on providing the data clear but
this isn't always the case so you can spend hours guessing...
Within the RIM classes, I found these references to GPS tha may or may not beuseful,

My application so far is pure J2ME using midlet (ex. import javax.microedition.midletimport javax.microedition.midlet.*), so I am wondering if I can combine above source codes to my existing application. I am planning to use my application to other wireless devices as well.
Any advice for J2ME version GPS?
Thanks for your reply.

BlackBerry devices support JSR 179, which is the standard set of J2ME APIs used for accessing GPS. It is not a BlackBerry specific API.
However, if you wish to integrate with BlackBerry Maps you would need to use BlackBerry specific APIs.
