Default Distributing Blackberry helper API

Please Login to Remove!


I am new to BB development and finding some trouble in understanding how to package a sample application for Blackberry.

I use Eclipse Plugin for Blackberry Development.

I have a sample application(say a HelloWorld application) and want to package and distribute.

1. What are the ways i can do it?
I see that by generating jad and cod files for the project i will be able to download it to my BB and install it. So what is the purpose of the .alx file?

2. also i find some .debug,.cso,.csl,.rapc and a .jar file in myh eclipse project. What is the purpose of the .jar generated here?

2. what if i dont have an application but only a helper API that i have created which can be used in other Blackberry applications. How should i package this? a jar? or a cod? file is needed.

Any suggestions/information regarding packaging would be really helpful. I am looking towards packaging an API which another developer can use in his blackberry application. So what is the best way to package this.?
