Applets and Java ME

The company I'm working at this summer is currently redesigning some
internal software; part of the new software has the ability to display
status updates via web pages which involve applets. One nice feature to
have would be able to view these on the BlackBerries that many employees

Some cursory searches on the internet lead me to believe that it is
possible to run applets on Java ME devices, but I didn't find any guides
to what would need to be done (the attempt to just view it on the
BlackBerry failed). As I have no experience programming (or using, for
that matter) Java ME and no ready access to a device (the company
doesn't give out BlackBerries to summer interns, for some strange reason
:-) ), I want to get some general feedback from people who have actually
developed Java ME.

The question, in short is this: What do I have to do get applets to run
on a BlackBerry? What would be the best framework to test such a setup?

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not
tried it. -- Donald E. Knuth
