How do I create mobile site which installs an application for BlackBerry

I would like to know how to put a application on a webpage so when visiting the corresponding URL it will prompt my BlackBerry to install an application.

 

example http://m.google.com when you visit this site and click the link to "Download Gogle Mobile App" the BlackBerry prompts you to download the application then install it. 

 

 

1. Using BlackBerry handheld software version 4.5 on the 8830 Curve

2. Using the BlackBerry internet Browser 

3. I have the application created with the following files ( .jar, .jad, .alx, .cod ) 

4. I have tested the application by installing via desktop manager and it works on the BlackBerry

 

Thanks,

Matt

Re: How do I create mobile site which installs an application for BlackBerry

You would check the useragent to determine if the visitor is using a blackberry, then give them a link to the OTA download page, which is the .JAD file. You need to set up the mime types for .jad and I think .cod though. This should be in the browser development forum though...
