Unhappy .Jar games

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so I have some .Jar executable files. My provider usually lets me download games OTA.
sooo what I tried is having a friend put them up via FTP for me on their web server, then I tried to access them from my blackberry to dowwnload from there. All I get when I type in the address on my BB browser is a bunch of strange code a page long...
If I access the same webpage with the .Jar file through a regular PC internet connection I get the popup window that says "you have chosen to open "Filename" which is an executable .Jar file and gives me the option to open or save which is what I thought my BB would do through my BB browser and OTA attempt.

Is there a certain way to test or upload these files so that they will work for OTA download? Is there something special that you have to do to a .Jar file to host it yourself on a site for downloading?
