import net.rim.device.api.lbs.Locator;
import javax.microedition.location.*;
String strLatitude = "";
String strLongitude = "";
try {
AddressInfo addressInfo = new AddressInfo();
addressInfo.setField( AddressInfo.CITY, "your city" );
addressInfo.setField( AddressInfo.POSTAL_CODE, "your postal code" );
addressInfo.setField( AddressInfo.STREET, "your street" );
addressInfo.setField( AddressInfo.COUNTRY, "your country" );
Landmark[] landmarkArray = Locator.geocode( addressInfo, null );
if( landmarkArray != null ) {
//access the first landmark from the array, otherwise iterate the array
QualifiedCoordinates qc = landmarkArray[0].getQualifiedCoordinates();
if( qc != null ) {
strLatitude = qc.getLatitude();
strLongitude = qc.getLongitude();
} catch( LocatorException locex ) {
//handle the locator exception
} catch( Exception ex ) {
//handle other exception

Locator.geocode(...) throws an IllegalStateException if a request is made on the event dispatch thread (see API help for details).
