Exclamation Application needed to track user keystroke activity on BB 7280

Please Login to Remove!

I am a Ph.D. student in Information Systems and I am in the process of finalizing an experiment. I am interested in an application that tracks a user's keystroke activity on a 7280 BlackBerry while performing the following tasks: SMS/PIN, calendar, address book, and wireless Web.

Any leads would be GREATLY appreciated! (e.g. if you know of any such applications/code, any developers that could help out, etc.)

I'm not sure if you want this application to run in the background or not but I found this article about GlobalEvents and a GlobalEventListener. It might be a good place to start.

This article:

Talks about Capturing events when the battery is low, so I'm sure there is something that you can take from it as well.

Here is the main entry point for the above articles.

Good Luck.

I think for action listeners to work the apps UI would have to be in focus.

Also the Global Event Listner really only triggers when something major on the device happens ( like a phone call or email )

This is probably not possible

I want to thank you all (simon.hain, sacramantojoe, and sircharleswl) for your suggestions. Unfortunately I am not a developer myself and need either an off-the-shelf application or someone to develop it for me. If anyone can help out, please contact me!
Thanks again

If I do it for you will I get the PhD instead?
It's possible.
Create all the code that handles the keystrokes and when you are in the JDE, go to the properties and have it Set as a System Module.

Exclamation

Since the code will capture a subset of the needed data to validate the proposed hypotheses formulated after extensive (4 years) research, I don't think that your proposal would fly with the university ;)

Coding for BB's is foreign to me, sacramentojoe, hence my post in the developer forum --> seeking assistance of proficient developers. I wouldn't dare to pretend that I could learn it in the short time frame available to me
Thank you for the suggestions all the same!!

From a point of view of keeping the world safe, would we actually want something like this developed? Keyloggers, for all intent purposes, are not the best things to have, especially in a secure environment. I'd hate for one to be made available, despite its original intentions for a project in the academia world, only to be released as some of the first rogue applications that would track keystrokes and send them to an off-handheld site/database for someone's pleasure. Just think about everything that could be found from this sort of application, provided that the firewall and content protection were not enabled (and even then, I don't think it'd too much matter).

Just my opinion weighing in on the subject matter...
