What error message is your Friend seeing. Do you see it when downloading to a non BlackBerry device. Which Browser is your Friend using (he should be using the BlackBerry Browser or the BlackBerry Internet Browser because the jar will need to transcoded to a cod and I don't think the WAP or WiFi browser's gateway will do this. Actually to be 100% honest I've not seen that the Blackberry Internet Browser will do it, but I suspect it should.

The conversion from jar to code is, for BES clients, handled automatically by the MDS processing on the BES. I believe for BIS users, the same is true for the BIS Browser. But this conversion (transcoding) will only be done by RIM code, so you must use a RIM gateway to get it. WAP and WiFi do not use RIM gateway, BlackBerry Browser and BlackBerry Internet Browser do.
Alternatively, you can convert it to a cod file (actually a number of cod files) and then any browser should be able to handle it.
Search the forum for instructions on converting a jar to a cod.
