Default Someone point me in the right direction?

Please Login to Remove!

Well I want to start learning how to develop applications for the Blackberry and ultimately do something very similar to 3jam multi-threaded SMS for myself. So can someone point me in the right direction as to where do I start? What do I download exactly?

Also the multi-threaded application isn't something I want to do right away, I first want to learn the basics and have that multi-threaded app as my final projection way down the road when I am actually good at this. So I looked at some of the "stickies" but they don't exactly say what to download once I am on the page.

Anyone have tutorials or something so that I can start learning?

Go here and download the Blackberry Java Development Environment (JDE)

BlackBerry - BlackBerry Developer Zone

If you are also new to Java, then I suggest that you get yourself a good Java book, or take a look at the tutorials on the Sun Java site.

I installed Blackberry JDE 4.5.0 along with J2SE Development Kit and Runtime Environment. Am I all set?

Make sure you uave your jdk/bin directory in your PATH variable, and make sure your JAVA_HOME is set, and you should be able to compile the samples.
