app and its library asking for separate deployments....

Hi folks

 

I've got an app I'm trying to put up for deployment.  I wrote it in Eclipse and it has 2 parts, the actual app that displays the gui and a library that does all the work.

 

People are getting prompted to do 2 installs, one for the app and one for the library.

 

Is there any way to make it all automatic?

What type of application (Java, WebWorks, AIR, Android or Native)?  How is the application being installed?

Sorry about leaving that info out.

 

Its a Java application.  Once it goes live it will be installed via App World.  I'm assuming deployment via App World would require the files found in deliverables/Web from an Eclipse Blackberry project.

Yes, when uploading to App World you would need to include both the application and library files.

 

Are you installing using the JAD file now?  You can combine them both into a single file.  Just make sure to list the library first.

Right now I'm installing via Desktop Manager or Eclipse.

I'm unfamiliar with installing via a JAD file. Is there a link where I can read more about it?

It's just a text file used for OTA browser deployments.

 

The same technique can be applied to the ALX files you are using.  Just open them in a text editor and combine the cod file listing so the user only has to choose 1 ALX file.

Does this mean I have to concatenate the contents of the two .jad files?

Basically yes.  You'd need to combine the listing of both cod files (updating the -#s to be unique).
