    Question Create OTA Install From DM Install

    Advertisement



    I have an app (RSA SecurID) which installs via DM. It has the standard COD and ALX files. I would like to make this available OTA to simplify install. Can I convert this to an OTA Download?

    johnck78, I'm pretty sure at a minimum you would need the BB JDE from the Blackberry Developers Site. Don't really know though.

    Simple enough task, number one entry when searching for 'jad' at the Developers Technical Knowledge Center. blackberry.com/knowledgecenterpublic/

    "Wireless application deployment over WAP"

    Re: Create OTA Install From DM Install

    The basics of it are to convert the install from ALX to JAD format. This is the install format readable via the BB Browser. Once you have the JAD and COD files, you need to post them all in a directory that is accessible via the browser.

    The kicker is that you need to modify the Web Service on the host machine by adding a couple MIME entries. One for JAD and one for COD.

    I got this info from the link posted above, but can't modify my hosting evironment, so am a little stuck. But figured I might save some other people a little bit of time.
