Question Keepass for Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I have the 8830 and I am trying to put Keepass (a opensource password storage program) on my BB. KeePass Password Safe

I have limited programing knowledge, therefore I putting out this request to all you out there.

Keepass has created the program as a J2ME, here

But I do not know how it install it to my BB. I do not know if it needs to be repackaged for the BB intaller to install the file.

This is a great program. I used it with my old PDA. It has a user interface on the PC so you can easly type in passwords from the PC then download them to your BB. Thus it also creats a back up on your PC.

Is there a way to install Keepass on to the BB? Please help.

Looks interesting but even after recompiling it it doesn't run on the Blackberry. I'll goof with it a bit and see if I can get it to work.

It's going to take some re-coding. The program uses an internal communication technique that causes the blackberry to lock up. Still woring on it.

Try the attached file. Unzip it and use the Desktop Manager to install it.

Since I've never used it before I can't exactly tell whether it works as advertized. I did use the desktop version to create a kdb file and I was able to read it on the BB.

Give it a shot and let me know.

I am interested to see if those with experience with the product would advise if RemyJ's recompiled version works or not.

I got it to install too and runs without locking. I created a test DB from my laptop and uploaded to a website, but couldn't pull it down using the BB.

I tried compiling the J2ME version into a jar and it would install, but then lock up. In this version I see you can open the DB in the jar but one does not exist. Can you somehow include the default database.kdb?

I use keepass on a usb key but for the bb what is wrong with password keeper? Granted, not as many options but def saves passwords securely and is wirelessly backed up on the BES in case my device blows up.

I'm working on a BB specific version of KeePass right now. Hopefully I'll have something usable for you guys to test by the end of the week.

Awesome -

Obviously, I just joined this forum, primarily to say thanks for your work on this! I can't tell you how much trouble this will save me, being able to read the file on my blackberry as well as a backup of the same format on another machine.

I'm downloading BB's desktop software so I can install the test version and will post back how it works. Looking forward to your new version also!

Sweet! Will it be able to read files off of the external memory card?

The initial version will read from an http server and from the external memory card because those are the 2 easiest methods. If all goes well, I'll try to add the ability to synch via the Desktop manager for those without media cards. That's a little more difficult becuse it requires a desktop manager plugin to be written.

Remyj Great job with the work that you are doing. Looks like we are getting more people interested in your work with KP on BB.


You mentioned in your post ...

The initial version, is that the zip file that is out there now? if so, using the external memory to store the database, does it have to be in the jar format?

if in jar format, will kp be able to find the file on the exteranl mem. or does the file have to be stored in a specific location on the internal mem? Does that question make sense?

What I am trying to get at, is that it would be great if we could store the database on the external mem as a .kdb file, then tell kp where to go to find the file and use that file as the database.

The jar file solution doesn't work so well for Blackberrys anyway so what you're asking for is exactly what I'm planning. In fact, I just wrote that bit this afternoon.

I wonder though... The original KeePassJ2ME did a one-time load of the file into an internal database and used the internal database after that. I think I'm going to give you an option to have KeePassBB always automatically load the external file every time it starts so you don't have to re-load it manually every time you make a change on the desktop version.

Still thinking...
