Re: Method to launch app on BB device

What type of application do you wish to launch, another third party application or a built in BlackBerry application?

 

Note that third party applications can be configured to run when the BlackBerry Smartphone starts up and remain running in the background, ready to perform some action when a given event takes place.

Re: Method to launch app on BB device

This should cover it...

 

You can launch the built in applications using the Invoke class.  http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/7.0.0api/net/rim/blackberry/api/invoke/Invoke.html

 

Launch a third-party application from another third-party application
