Private distribution of Apps to Playbook

Is there a way of distributing an AIR application privately outside the AppWorld? actually, i am developing a corporate application which required to be distributed to authorized users only.

Re: Private distribution of Apps to Playbook

Until RIM incorporates the Playbook into their server software I think you are going to have to install it manually.  Set up a computer with the SDK and your .bar file on it, plug in a Playbook and then use the deploy command.  You could probably write a program to automate some of that.

As NormanF described you have to do it manually, but instead of deploying it via USB, you can also just use WiFi.
After retrieving all the PlayBook's IPs it shouldn't be a problem to automatically install your App to all those devices.

Does the device have to be in development mode for the applications to be installed?
