I think I am getting into territory of which I know very little (but am willing to learn). Is there a simple explanation of .cod, .alx, and .jar/.jad files.
All I know is that OTA I install .jad files. When I install via sync I think I have only installed .cod files. What is the purpose of the .alx files?
I checked my file directories and found the following:
- two directories under \Program Files\Common Files\RIM\Shared\Loader Files:
- under the 188.8.131.52 directory I have a list of .alx files
- under the \Java subdirectory to the above are all the .cod files
- none of the applications I have loaded (either OTA or via sync) are listed in any of these directories...
So what is supposed to be where?
