Is there anyway to write applications in C/C++ for the BlackBerry device? Even though I realize it is a Java device, it must still have a C/C++ base underneath since the J2ME code is still interpreted. Am I missing something?

Why I am asking is that i need to port a device C/C++ client to the latest BlackBerry devices and it would be great not to have to do a re-write in Java.

Thanks for the fast reply.

One thing I should have made clear I know I can re-write the C/C++ code in Java and keep the relative structure the same. However, I am trying to avoid that. I need to use the C/C++ code wholesale w/o porting to Java.

I think you are reduced to a rewrite of the code....

One question.

Do you think the media player in my Pearl is coded in Java or C++ ?
