Configure the path variable (environment variables) to include the tool updatejad.exe, this will be usually under c:\program files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE \bin. if you are using BlackBerry JDE or if you are using eclipse C:\eclipse\plugins\net.rim.ejde.componentpack4.5.0_4.5.0.28\bin.

Open command prompt, navigate to the folder where you have copied the application cod files and jad files, then execute the following command

updatejad -q -n [your_application_name.jad] [space] [3rd_party_application_name.jad]

The usage of updatejad tool is as follows.

Usage: updatejad.exe -q -n [input.jad] [[additional.jad] ...]
