Store a message in BlackBerry messages folder.

Hi all,


I want to develop a chat client and i want new message to be appear in blackberry's default Messages folder. And this chat client is cross platform so i think chatting via e-mail or pin message which are stored in message folder by default.


Is their any other way to make the application cross platform and save the chat data in message folder???

Re: Store a message in BlackBerry messages folder.

Yes, this is possible.  Have a look at the messagelistdemo included with the BlackBerry JDE and BlackBerry Java SDK for an example.  Documentation can be found here:
