Hi,

If you meant a Web Browser, I'd suggest to
Port Opera Mini (CLDC/MIDP, open source, but look into the license first) to BDJ, should not be difficult:

- lcdui -> awt (inside TV)
- GCF -> java.net
- keyboard input -> awt key event-s.

the only problem is you'll have to do something with Command-s.

Hmm,

failed to find it's sources...
I was always thinking that it is open source, and it looks like I'm wrong here.

In general, you can find an open source W/B and port it.
Googling gives some: http://lobobrowser.org/java-browser.jsp,
for example. Didn't check how costly the porting
J2SE AWT->CDC/PBP though...
