If you installed your webcam properly then you can use it without any problem as far as i know. I have integrated webcam and it worked without any configuration.
Install your webcam drivers, connect the webcam, check out if in the Windows OS working properly and after i think you can use without any problem in the simulator too.
Blame me if i have wrong..

2. Now started blackberry simulator, and enter into camera.
But its not take web camera view. its show me only image what i set in

I'm confused as to what you are trying to do.
If you expect to be able to use your Webcam like a simulated BlackBerry camera, that is not supported as far as I know.

But am using built in camera in my application. Here i have to take snaps for every seconds.
I dont have real device. For that i want to use Webcam like a simulated BlackBerry camera.
Else How can i test it.

As far as I know, the only thing you can do is tell give the Simulator an image that it will use for the camera. See the "Simulate" menu option on the SImulator.

At least for the 5.0 simulators it works, I have been able to do it using the CameraDemo app. SImply plug it in and it works for me.

"1. Started web camera. Its running and ready to take picture."
Maybe you can try without this step, the program what you use for viewing the webcamera picture will use the camera source and then the simulator can`t access it.
I don`t try to use the camera within an application but i made some pictures with the emulator inbuild photo application.
