Likely your web server is not sending the correct MIME types for .jad and .cod files, as documented in Installing BlackBerry Java Applications Using the Web Browser. How you do this depends on your web server, but for Apache web servers you can do this by following the instructions in How to Setup an Apache Web Server to Deliver BlackBerry OTA Applications.
