Default porting or using DLLs on BlackBerry Device

Please Login to Remove!


I am new to Blackberry Development.

I am trying to port some c++ build DLLs like Zlib.dll etc to work on Blackberry.

Is there any way I can use these DLLs to work on new BlackBerry device.

Do I need to write any wrapper

or BlackBerry can support DLL format file?

BlackBerrys are Java based (J2ME - Java 2 Microedition) so you're out of luck. You'll have to port the DLLs yourself. Although the Zlib and Gzip libraries are available. Check out the package net.rim.device.api.compress in the API documentation.
