JavaLoader error

I am trying to load my application using JavaLoader and a JAD file. I have successfully done this with one application, but when I try a different application I get this error.


"Error: file is not a valid Java code file"


and it won't load. The applications were both built using an Ant build script and only differ on the details about the cod-files and the name of the application. On top of that I can load the application using the JAD by putting them on a website and downloading the files just fine.


What is that error message trying to tell me? Does JavaLoader look at different attributes in the JAD file than the device does while downloading the files?


I have tried using the JavaLoader from JDE 4.7 (what I compiled the app with), JDE 5.0 (what the device has), and also JDE 4.2.

Re: JavaLoader error

Do you see the same results when building the application using the BlackBerry JDE or BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse (instead of the ant build script)?
