Re: For push operation how can I get current network address of BB device

Hi,

 

When you push to a BlackBerry smartphone you push to either the email address or PIN associated with the device. These can be previously known or read from the BES.

 

Performing a Browser Channel Push is definitely possible to be done from within a Java application, check out the HTTPDemo (server-side) included with the BlackBerry JDEs and JDE Plug-ins for Eclipse (eJDE) which displays this.

Re: For push operation how can I get current network address of BB device

If you are using BES version 5.0 or above then you could install and use the BlackBerry Administration APIs to gather a list of all users, their email addresses and associated PINs:

If using an earlier version of BES then you could use the BlackBerry Resource Kit which can achieve the same results but will need to be run from the BES.
