I've recently looked at the PUSH API as well as the PUSH Lab, that has been provided to us as resources. It works successfully using the simulator, now I wish to use it on an actual device.
My question is: is it possible to connect the lab's PUSH Demo Java file with an actual Blackberry running on a network with data plan? If so, how would I go about and do this? I did notice there's a HTTPPushDemo.java file. I'm thinking I may have to modify this... Any pointers would definitely be appreciated.
By the way, I do have my Blackberry's PIN.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Is your device connected to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES)? If so, you should be able to look at the HTTPPushDemo.java code and change its target URL to your BES instead of your local machine.
Then you should be good to go.

I'm not sure if the Blackberrys I have access to are BES or BIS. But I would likely assume they are BIS, because I don't see the point in having a BES set up for 5 devices especially when security is not an issue.
Am I out of luck if they are BIS?

For BIS devices, you will have to sign up for a public Push account. Details can be found here:

Thanks! I'll have to talk to my professor to see if I actually need to demo the application on the device or if a simulator demo will suffice.
Now this thread covers both BES and BIS
