Re: From BB Browser, how to launch my application when a custom mime type is encountered

An update:


Found out that the invocation from the browser is not through CHAPI but through the BrowserContentProvider.  A sample can be found in the samples/device/blackberry/browser/BrowserPlugin.  It's similar to CHAPI that it registers a MIME type and all. 


My application can be accessed through from the Browser and through CHAPI so to be safe, I used to different extensions for each (less it runs into an issue of which handles the extension if both are registered)


Hope this helps.
