I am new to BlackBerry application development and I would like to know how to merge multiple cod files to a single file.
Currently I tried by putting cod file and alx file in the same folder and tried to install the application on a device using desktop manager ,but I am getting an error message . If I am adding the complete standard folder then I am able to install the application.(my application is of 6 MB size).Why is it so?
Can anyone please tell me how to install the application with just a single lax and cod file.
Thanks in advance.

Have you put all cod files or sigle to install the application. as to install the application all cod files are required...

Actually the cod file which is present in the standard folder is a zip file of multiple folders . I just copied that cod file and alx file from standard folder and pasted in a new folder. Then I try to import the alx file from newly created folder using BlackBerry desktop manager

The size could be an issue

Actually my doubt is that , for installing an app on a device using desktop manager do we need the whole standard folder or just alx and cod file?
When I am using just alx and cod files it's giving me error and if I use the entire standard folder then I can install the application.So do I need to merge the multiple cod files into one file for installing the app using just alx and cod files?

From my own experience for desktop installation you need .ALX and single .COD file. For OTA install you need .JAD and multiple .COD files. So in your case you need to merge the separate COD files into one single COD file

Thanks for the reply.
Can you please tell me how to merge the separate COD files into a single one?
Also what is the case for it to app world?

Hmm, usually my IDE generates only one COD file so I never faced that issue before. You can try just to pack the separate files in a ZIP archive (with WinZip or WinRar) and then to rename the archive extension to .COD.
As for the App World - you can just upload the multiple cod files. If you upload one big cod file, the multiple cod files will be automatically extracted from the big one, so there is really no point to make one big cod file.
