Description

Install BlackBerry Java Applications using the BlackBerry® Desktop Software

You can install a BlackBerry Java Application on a BlackBerry device by instructing the user to use the application loader tool that is part of the BlackBerry Desktop Software. An automated application installer installs the application files on the user’s computer. The user uses the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager to navigate to the application files and install the BlackBerry Java Application on a BlackBerry device that the user connects to the computer.

Install BlackBerry Java Applications using the BlackBerry Application Web Loader

You can install a BlackBerry Java Application on a BlackBerry device by instructing the user to browse to a specific web server that you configured to use the BlackBerry Application Web Loader. The user must connect the BlackBerry device to the computer.

Install BlackBerry Java Applications using the standalone application loader tool

You can install a BlackBerry Java Application on a BlackBerry device by installing the standalone application loader tool in a shared network folder, and providing users with a link to run the tool. The user must connect the BlackBerry device to the computer.

This method requires that you install the BlackBerry® Device Manager on the user's computer but does not require a full installation of the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

Install BlackBerry Java Applications using a web browser on BlackBerry devices

You can install a BlackBerry Java Application on a BlackBerry device by installing the files for the BlackBerry Java Application on a web server and instructing the user to browse to the appropriate web address on the BlackBerry device. Users can download the BlackBerry Java Application from an Internet web site using a web browser or from an intranet web site using the BlackBerry® Browser.

This method does not require the user to connect the BlackBerry device to the computer.
