Distributing a BlackBerry device application from a web page

You can use the BlackBerry® Application Web Loader to allow BlackBerry device users to install a BlackBerry device application from a web page.

When you package the project by using the BlackBerry® Java® Plug-in for Eclipse®, you can distribute the .jad and .the cod files that are located in the deliverables folder of the project. When BlackBerry device users use Windows® Internet Explorer® to visit the web page that hosts the .jad and the .cod files, they are asked to connect their BlackBerry device to the USB port on their computer. A Microsoft® ActiveX® control installs the BlackBerry device application . For more information about using the BlackBerry Application Web Loader, see the BlackBerry Application Web Loader Developer Guide.
