Default Application Development with .NET

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to BlackBerry development. I came across a pluging for Visual Studio for Blackberry. If we use this, we need to have MDS service running on Enterprise Server, but our organization doesnt have MDS license.

I would like to know is there any other way I can develop .net application for blackberry such that I dont need to use MDS service?

Thanks in advance

You could write .net web services, and consume them on the Blackberry by writing a Java program that uses JSR172 or KSOAP.

You might also write a web app that that is accessed from the BB browser.
