SourceCode for Java API?

Is there any way to get access to the source code for the BlackBerry Java API library?  I am trying to work with protecting a set of crypto keys using the Memory Cleaner.  I am currently using the LDAPPasswordCache to store my keys because it is the only class in the library that implements the MemoryCleanerListener.  I would like to develop my own key storage class, but I would love to see how LDAPPasswordCache is implemented so that I can use it as a model for my own class.

Re: SourceCode for Java API?

RIM is very protective of its source code. There are copyright issues, you understand. Not releasing hte course code is a way for them to protect the time and effor they put into developing their product and API. I wouldn't expect special treatment in this regard.


That said, all power to you. Might as well ask.


Good luck,
