JAD file installation?

I need some basic instructions on installing an application on BlackBerry.

As an example...I have been trying to get access to KABlog to post Blog entries from the BB web browser.

I see that there is a JAD file and a JAR file on the KABlog site, but I'm not sure what to do with it.

1) I tried to open the JAD file on the BB browser, it asked me if I wanted to download the application, I said yes, but it said "Invalid JAR file".

2) I downloaded the JAD and JAR files onto my PC in the hopes of using the Application Loader, but this only seems to accept ALX or ALI files.

I don't know what kind of phone you have or what OS is on the phone so I can't really help you.

this may or may not work. who knows. test it out and see. if it doesnt, search for 'rapc' and there will be a HOWTO thread by Mark Rejhon for converting jar/jad to cod. i used JDE 4.1, so you may have to use JDE 4.0.2 for it to work. use javaloader (search) to load the cod to your handheld.
