Re: invoking 3rd party application from browser link

Since no one else is answering I will pass on what I can.

 

I think you have two choices, I have used and tested neither of them so this is entirely from reading.

 

1) Content Handler - in this case you would make the download link be handled by your specific applications - I think there would have to be an actual link

 

b) HttpFilterRegistry - in this you provide the response to the Browser - so you can tell it something simple like 'application started' and then do processing in your own application. 

 

Have a look at these and see if you can figure it out.  I would also recommend that you search the forum, because I am confident this question has been asked before.

Re: invoking 3rd party application from browser link

Thank you very much peter for you help. I have implemented the feature to open my blackberry application by calling a URL or from a hyperlink click in device browser.

 

I have also found this tread on forum
