how to get address using longitute and latitude

I am using Geocoding .I want to get address or location using longitude and latitute .But when I used bedford .It is showing Atlantic ocean every time.

How to solve that problem .

package mypackage;
import javax.microedition.location.AddressInfo;
import javax.microedition.location.Landmark;
import net.rim.device.api.lbs.Locator;
import net.rim.device.api.lbs.LocatorException;
import net.rim.device.api.system.Application;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.component.Dialog;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.component.LabelField;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.container.MainScreen;
public class myReverseGeocode extends MainScreen
    private Thread reverseGeocode;
    public myReverseGeocode()
        reverseGeocode = new Thread(thread);
    Runnable thread = new Runnable()
        public void run()
            AddressInfo addrInfo = null;
            int latitude  = (int)(52.135973);
            int longitude = (int)(-0.466655);
                Landmark[] results = Locator.reverseGeocode
                 (latitude, longitude, Locator.ADDRESS );
                if ( results != null && results.length > 0 )
                    addrInfo = results[0].getAddressInfo();
                  add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo));
              add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo.getField(addrInfo.BUILDING_FLOOR)));
              add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo.getField(addrInfo.CITY)));
              add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo.hashCode()));
              add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo.getField(addrInfo.BUILDING_NAME)));
              add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo.getField(addrInfo.COUNTRY)));
              add(new LabelField("------------------------"+addrInfo.getField(addrInfo.STREET)));
          //      add(new LabelField("---"+addrInfo));
            catch ( LocatorException lex )
                      System.out.print("EVENT THREAD\n");

Re: how to get address using longitute and latitude

These lines most likely cause the issue:
int latitude = (int)(52.135973);
int longitude = (int)(-0.466655);

by casting to int you remove all digits after the dot.
Take a look in the API:
latitude - The latitude of the address, specified as decimal degrees to five decimal places, multiplied by 100000
