Double click on the “MyScreen.java” and replace the following code in it.

package mypackage;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.component.LabelField;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.container.MainScreen;

public final class MyScreen extends MainScreen
{
LabelField lbl = new LabelField();
public MyScreen()
{
// Set the displayed title of the screen
setTitle("My First Application");

lbl.setText("Hello Blackberry");
add(lbl);
}
}

Here I have added a label field and assigned the text as “Hello Blackberry”. I have changed the screen title as “My First Application”.

Step 4
Right click on the screen and select Run As  BlackBerry Simulator
