Phonegap App : Multiple build for one application in App world.

Hello Everyone, I facing an issue with release of app in blackberry app world. My issue is , i have two builds of same application one for Blackberry touch devices i.e. Blackberry torch and one build for Blackberry non-touch devices i.e. bold and curve. I just wanted to know that , how we can release the same app with two builds in Blackberry app world? After building the application using phonegap, we have 2 folders named StandardInstall having the .alx and .cod files and OTAInstall having the .jad and .cod files. For submitting to the app world, which are the files needed ? (Is it StandardInstall or OTAInstall)? If it is StandardInstall, do we have to give 2 builds (zipped) for touch and non-touch devices? Or having a single build (1 zip) with 1.alx file referring to 2 .cod files (cod file for touch and non-touch-devices)? Can anyone please explain the procedure to this. Any document or links will be helpful. Thank you

You just need the COD files from the StandardInstall directory. You can upload these for either app to the App World vendor portal specifying which devices are supported for each.

Hi Garett, Thanks for your reply. So is it like when we will submit the app to the blackberry app world , we need to submit 2 .cod file from standard install of different builds , under the same app name specifying what all devices each .cod file will support. And the redirection of required .cod file will be handled by blackberry app world based on the user handset request (i.e. on which device user want to download the app). Thanks.

You can submit both versions of the app under the same application in the vendor portal, you just need to add them as separate file bundles with separate supported devices:

Give this a try and let me know if you experience any difficulties.
