    You have to visit the Link where you download the .jar/.jad file with your BB browser and it will download OTA(over the air)

    You can easily host them yourself if you have access to a basic Apache webserver.

    - create a 'mobile' folder at the root of your webspace, for instance /bb/
    - inside this folder create a text file name ".htaccess" (notice the leading dot) and put the below inside of it:

    Code:
    # Index opotions
    IndexOptions +DescriptionWidth=* +SuppressDescription +SuppressIcon
    
    # Basic WML
    AddType text/vnd.wap.wml .wml
    AddType application/vnd.wap.wmlc .wmlc
    AddType text/vnd.wap.wmlscript .wmls
    AddType application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc .wmlsc
    AddType image/vnd.wap.wbmp .wbmp
    
    # J2ME
    AddType application/java-archive .jar
    AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor .jad
    
    # BlackBerry
    AddType application/vnd.rim.cod .cod
    
    # Certs
    AddType application/x-pkcs12 .p12
    AddType application/x-x509-ca-cert .crt
    AddType application/x-x509-ca-cert .der
    AddType application/x-x509-ca-cert .cer
    
    # PRC files (eBook)
    #AddType application/x-mobipocket-ebook .prc
    AddType application/octet-stream .prc
    You can now dump your JAD/JAR files in here, as well as COD files that might be included by a JAD file (depends on the app) and browse to it on your BB, in effect having your own OTA server. I personally download everything I want and save it on my own server, so that if I reformat my handheld it's easier to reinstall everything.

    I use a tree like so:

    /bb/
    /bb/ota/
    /bb/pictures/
    /bb/sounds/
    /bb/videos/

    ...to keep the content organized.

    Re: Can .jar files be installed?

    I tried creating the htaccess file in my apache for windows installation but it doesn't alow me to give the name .htaccess
    it seems to need an extension. Any work around?
    Thx

    You can also put it on the Media Card, and use Explore from the Media/Menu to browse to the .jar file then select open from the menu. This will simulate a OTA Download and install it on your Pearl.
