Creating a third-party application for a device

An application developer can create a third-party application for a Java® based BlackBerry® device using the BlackBerry® Java® Development Environment or the BlackBerry® Java® Plug-in for Eclipse®.

A third-party application can perform the following actions on a device:
  • communicate and share persistent storage with other applications
  • access BlackBerry device user data such as calendar entries, email messages, and contacts

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