Creating a third-party application for a BlackBerry device

A developer can create a third-party application for a Java® based BlackBerry® device using the BlackBerry® Java® Development Environment. A third-party application can perform the following actions on a BlackBerry device:
  • communicate and share persistent storage with other applications
  • access user data such as calendar entries, email messages, and contacts

By default, a user can download a third-party application to a BlackBerry device over the wireless network using the BlackBerry® Browser. You can also send a third-party application to the BlackBerry device over the wireless network so that a user can install it on the BlackBerry device.
