Application (CodeModuleGroup) name and friendly name if installed from Blackberry App World

Hi, expert,

 

As we know, at the blackberry device, one application is listed as CodeModuleGroup. Each code module group can have a group name and a friendly name. Based on my testing experience, for this software: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/38406,

group name: iSpeech Translator:iSpeech.org

friendly name: iSpeech Translator

 

So the group name is <friendly name>:<vendor name>, is that always that way or user could change the group name any way they want?

 

By the way, the group name convention is same as the group name for applications installed from a JAD file.

 

Thanks in advance for your insight.

For app downloaded from AppWorld it is the same naming convention every time: app name + vendor name. If you install from your own server via JAD you get usually only the app name as CodeModuleGroup name. It doesn't affect installation actually, I have updated OTA installed app with AppWorld version and vice versa, no issues at all.

Thanks a lot for confirming this.

Actually I don't see this based on my testing. The group name seems to be MIDlet-Name:MIDlet-Vendor. The friendly name is MIDlet-Name. With that, it would be same as app downloaded from app world.
