Re: J2ME on BlackBerry

I must be looking at different information than you. Both the AT&T Dev
site and the Blackberry site show that most of the Blackberries from the
last two years on Cingular run Java. I have in my hand a Blackberry 8700
running on Cingular that runs Java. I have only tested this one device
directly. But, you have to pay the extra money per month for the
blackberry data plan.

In my case, my Java app is running pretty well, but the Java app cannot
connect to server-based resources via http. ( I can use the Internet to
download Jar/Jad files). I am not yet sure if I still don't have the right
data plan, or if my code needs modification. The code in my app that is
accessing http resources has been tested on over 125 handsets so my
inclination is to look first at my AT&T data plan and then look at the code.

Configuring this correctly has been a sticky problem in the past. You
may find it helpful to look in the Opera Mini forums to see how their
BB users have solved the problem. You may also find some help in the
BB forums, or working through RIM's developer relations.

The solution may be as simple as asking your users to enter the
following in Options>Advanced>TCP

APN: wap.cingular
Username: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1

See the following for more details:

In my experience, there was first a small hurdle getting the right
browser icon to appear. The appearance of this icon indicated the
presence of the required service plan. Then there was the small
matter of configuring the APN...

Yep, most of Blackberrys are completely Java-based and have been for awhile now, although not necessarily using standard MIDP.

In another post I am having problems getting my app to run on Blackberry emulators though....
