I have an android app, that handles a number of file types, such as .doc, .pdf, .odt and others. When i install it on BlackBerry, the content handler API for Android is ignored.
How should i go about making my android app a content handler for those file types in BlackBerry? I need to make my app one of the handlers that are offered to the user, when files like .pdf are opened.

At the moment this is not supported (well actually it'd be supported from one Android app to another, but that's unfortunately it).
We don't currently have a mechanism for Android apps to be handlers of data outside of the Android context. It's something we'd like to address eventually.

bbenninger, thank you for your explaination.
So, if I understand correctly, i can not even start an Android app from a Native app? If i could do that, i could make a clumsy workaround in the form of a native app that would serve as a sort of a proxy between Blackberry system and my Android app. The idea was to make a native app, that would only register as a content handler and then transfer the data onto my Android app?
Is there a way of doing that? If anybody has an idea for a workaround, i'm ready to listen.
