Help on desktop sample/synchronize PIM please

I am attempting to figure out the sample desktop add-in, and how it interacts with the blackberry.


My main question:  Must I write a synchronization application on the blackberry from scratch, or is there some built-in method for synchronizing with the Blackberry's PIM information?  I would prefer no extra software to need to be written on the Blackberry.


Also, there is no 'Syncdemo' project in the 4.6.0 JDE (i saw it in 4.1.0), is this meant to interact with the Desktop Sample program?


Thank you!

Re: Help on desktop sample/synchronize PIM please

A Desktop Add-in is designed to communicate with a custom application on the BlackBerry.  Direct communication with the built in PIM databases is not supported.


The syncdemo is designed to work with the Desktop Add-in sample. 


I have made our development team aware that this sample is missing from the version 4.6.0 BlackBerry JDE.
