The BES should identify a program as an "upgrade" by the Internal Project Name. This is the value set in the "application id" tags in the ALX file. The physical file names <<should>> be irrelevant, but clearly this isn't the case. I understand the BES doesn't have a crystal ball, but it is reading the ALX file. It's very typical to identify a version of a build by including the version number in the filename.
Remember, when an application is deployed via a URL download, the physical file names are irrelevant. This has been tested and proven. The issue only surfaced when trying to deploy via the BES (using an ALX file instead of a JAD file).
This is the whole reason for this posting - can the COD files be renamed for a BES push? It looks like the answer is no, even though I haven't found any documentation about this.
