Testing applications on a BlackBerry device
After you test your application on the BlackBerry® Smartphone Simulator, you can install your application on a BlackBerry device. If your application uses signed APIs, you might need code signing keys. After you install the application on the BlackBerry device, you can open the application and test its functionality and performance.
For debugging purposes, you can attach your device to the BlackBerry® Integrated Development Environment and use the debugging tool to step through your application code. The BlackBerry IDE can be useful if you are trying to identify a network or Bluetooth® issue, or other issues that are difficult to simulate.
