    To need or not to need...?

    Advertisement



    was wondering if these items are necessary for install with the OS? BB MDS Runtime and DOD Root Certificates. I haven't experienced any problems without them over the last two OS updates but i was just wondering what they are and what they do or if i need them in my phone.

    BlackBerry MDS Services is a set of services on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server that handle requests from BlackBerry MDS applications. BlackBerry MDS utilizes standards-based integration methods to manage interactions with enterprise applications and back-end systems, such as, XML Web Services, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), and Web Services Description Language (WSDL). This allows software to interact, regardless of programming language, platform, or operating system.
    BlackBerry MDS Studio™ is a visual application design and assembly tool that allows developers to quickly assemble wireless applications using drag and drop functionality.
    BlackBerry MDS Runtime™ is BlackBerry Device Software that provides runtime services for applications developed with BlackBerry MDS Studio.
    From RIM

    Well, unless you log in to U. S. Department of Defense Secure sites you will not need the DOD Root Certificates. I'm not sure about MDS runtime, but it may be related to using a BES connection.

    DOD root certificates are root certificates for the Department of Defense. So i am asumming as long as you are niether undercover CIA,FBI, NSA Etc. or on the BES that they are uneeded. Although i do not know for sure.

    Not quite, you would need this cert to view any DoD website. That includes all branches of the milarties web pages, Homeland Security, forms, general info and such. If you never visit such sites then you don't need them.
