API v5.0.2.25 and API v5.0.0.26 compatibility

Developing a java based component for provisioning users with BES 5.0, we are using the Blackberry Administration API. The version we are using is the one coming with the BES installation we downloaded, v5.0.2.25.


Is there any problem using our component that we developed with this version of the API against a customer installation of BES, when they download and install the version of the Administration API's ?


We need to know if the differences/changes are such between the two versions that some parts won't work. Maybe it is just about a few enhancements but we need to make sure.

Re: API v5.0.2.25 and API v5.0.0.26 compatibility

The BlackBerry Administration APIs are forwards compatible, not backwards. So an application developed for BAA 5.0.0 would work in 5.0.2, but one developed for 5.0.2 would not work in 5.0.0. Generating a proxy against the 5.0.0 BES and replacing the 5.0.2 proxy in your application would verify this (show errors) and also let you know what changes have been made between the versions.



Goodbye everybody!
