I want to publish a trial version of my app on BB world. The trial version has a button, which links to the complete version of the app on BB world, so the consumers can buy it there. I use this call
but that does not work. I assume this is because I use the URL to the web version of BB world. Which URL should I use so the app can access the complete version on BB world? The web URL to this app is

I know it has something to do with the SKU of the app. I can't find the proper link format but I did find this: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Develo

Does anyone know how to just connect to the URL of the app on the appworld?
I don't think that I can use the code that you supplied for starting the BB client, because my app is a midlet and not a UIApplication.

The other imports give me similar error messages. I assume that the code that you suggested is for UIApplications and that it can't be used in a midlet app?

I don't believe it wouldn't work in a Midlet. The first link I posted doesn't seem to have anything that wouldn't work in a Midlet, but I haven't tried.
