I'm a beginner of blackberry development. My task is to help make our company's current website blackberry friendly. And may add blackberry friendly web services as well. So my question is where do I start? what technologies do I need to implement these?
Please kindly provide some directions.
Your help will be greatly appreciated it.

A good place to start looking is the video library:
And Browser docs:
There have also been some great blog posts lately

Apologies for the shameless self-promotion, but there's a new book coming out in a month that directly addresses how to get started with the BlackBerry Browser and optimize your web site.
I'm in the process of finishing an article series on how to consume a web service on a BlackBerry, The first two parts are available at www.johnwargo.com.

I am also new to blackberry development. When I downloaded the complete package for web development which includes eclipse and blackberry plugin, I donot see the BlackBerry option in the "debug as" drop down menu.
Did I do something wrong?

What kind of eclipse project have you created? is it a Dynamic Web Project? or something else?

Simply adding the following to our page got me off to a good start.

Still working towards more things, but time is limited.

It is a dynamic web project. Just created the project and checked the "Debug As" drop down, no BlackBerry option??
Can you confirm that you have Java 1.6 installed on your machine. It would also be helpful if you could post a screenshot listing all of your plug-ins so that we can confirm it is installed correctly

I tried installing on another machine and it works fine.Now "Blackberry Web" shows up in "Debug As" drop down etc.
May be something wrong with the previous machine.
Thanks for your help.
