Browser Integration Question

[ Edited ]



I am creating an application that will process certain types of links when they are clicked in the  BlackBerry Web Browser.  For example, say I want to create an application that streams a certain video format.


I just found this document but I'm not sure if it will pass it to my application before or after it has been downloaded?  I would much prefer that my application receive the URL of the link immediately, rather than download it first.


Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Browser Integration Question

A Content Handler will likely be the best approach.


If the URLs you want to capture are from a specific domain you could make use of an HttpFilter.  Have a look at the httpfilterdemo included with the BlackBerry Java SDK or BlackBerry JDE for an example.
