Javaloader.exe Update

E-mail Print PDF
Hi...

I ran across this but any BB Dev Admin will probably already know this. You can use Javaloader.exe to manually add your 3rd part apps to your BB Handheld Device. I downloaded this exe and using the required syntax, I was able to load a 3rd party application I had downloaded after I purchased online. I could not connect to the website I downloaded the application from to try a OTA load, so I was able to download the app, extract the files from the zip file and then use a command line to load the application to the BB device using Javaloader.exe. On my way finding the solution to this I discovered a web site forum that gave me the necessary syntax to load the device. The help file the exe provided on the command line did not give me what I needed. Instead, I followed this setup I found in a forum:

****************************************************

Can someone please tell me how can I load my first midlet application onto my RIM 6750 device using comand line tool? :confused:
Details about my application are as follows:

  • 1. Port to which handheld is attached : COM1
  • 2. Bit rate speed to the serial port: 115200
  • 3. Location of JavaLoader.exe file: 'C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 3.6\bin'.
  • 4. Name of the application cod file: MyFirstMidlet
  • 5. Location of the cod file 'MyFirstMidlet.cod' : 'C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 3.6\bin' (i.e. same as JavaLoader.exe file's location)

    From the bin folder I tried several commands to load the application, but everytime it gives me the explaination about the usage about RIM java loader in the command prompt. Few of the commands I tried are as follows:

    a) JavaLoader -pCOM1 -b115200 load MyFirstMidlet

    b) JavaLoader -pCOM1 -b115200 load MyFirstMidlet.cod

    c) JavaLoader -pCOM1 -b115200 load MyFirstMidlet.cod

    d) JavaLoader -usb -pCOM1 -b115200 load MyFirstMidlet.cod

    Thanks.

    Stop using -usb. It's mutually exclusive to the serial ports. Also, it's pointless to specify the bit rate.

    The syntax for specifying the port is just -p1, -p2, etc. I believe -p1 is the default, so you could just omit it.

    So something like:

    javaloader load .cod

    should work for you, assuming it really is on COM1.
    ****************************************************

    As you can see here, the "Load" command was the key and then pointing the exe to the file. I loaded Javaloader.exe into the root folder of the cod appliation folder. Once this was done, I ran the syntax: javaloader.exe -u load xxxxxx.cod.

    The -u lets the loader know it is USB and not a Com port...!

    The BB Handheld Device challanged for the password and the application loaded!

    Good Luck....
