Running jar on the BlackBerry simulator

How can I test my application on BlackBerry simulator?

My application is a MIDlet and already packed as Jar and Jad files.

How can I tested it on the Blackberry simulator? I have installed the JDE 5.0.

Re: Running jar on the BlackBerry simulator

If you want to retain the JAD/JAR combination, see this link:


How Do I Deploy My MIDlet (JAR file)?



If you want to convert to JAD/COD files, see the next link.  Note that the COD file format is the native file format on BlackBerry Smartphones.
