Newbie! - GPS app



i'm a newbie here, i want to develop a blackberry APP but i have no idea where to start. Basically what i need to do is a app that gets the user location when the user presses a button on the app and sends the data via xml or json to an url. I have experience programming with php, javascript and other web technologies. I do have little experience with java, however im really looking forward to it. 


Can someone please point me into the right direction to start? 


thanks in advance!!!
