Properties of BlackBerry device application .jad files

The BlackBerry® Integrated Development Environment lets you create a dual-purpose .jad file to support the downloading of MIDlets onto BlackBerry devices and other wireless devices. To do this, create a .jad file that contains both the RIM-COD-URL and RIM-COD-Size attributes and the MIDlet-Jar-URL and MIDlet-Jar-Size attributes. On BlackBerry devices, download the .cod files; on other wireless devices, download the .jar files.
