I am curious if there is a way to deploy an application with a loose settings file.
My goal is for clients to deploy the application after they have made changes to an XML settings file.
After the changes would be made to the XML file, the client could deploy via BES or another method.
Is this possible?
I've written several .Net applications that makes uses of loose/external XML settings files and i want to acoomplish the same thing.
Any hints, tips, or ideas are greatly appreciated.
My current development environment:
BlackBerry JDE Plug-in For Eclpise 126.96.36.199
Blackberry JDE Component Package 188.8.131.52
Blackberry JDE Component Package 184.108.40.206
Blackberry JDE Component Package 220.127.116.11
Blackberry JDE Component Package 18.104.22.168
Blackberry JDE Component Package 22.214.171.124
WIndow XP SP 3

There are no "loose" files in a Blackberry deployment.
You can incorporate your XML into the project - would that work?

i have looked at that route and have considered it.
ideally i would like application to be configured when its deployed.
The configuration would not be done by the developer, but whoever is deploying the application.
I would like used a windows application thats already buit in .NET.
It has a GUI and can generate the settings XML file.
So when the application needs deploying, a BES administrator can run that utitlity to configure the settings for the BlackBerry application and deploy it. When the BlackBerry application runs, it would detect the settings file configured by the BES administrator and operate accordingly.
The acutal phone user wouldn't and shouldn't configure the XML but the BES administrator.
Packing file inside the project wouldn't allow me to do this would it?

Thats a good idea. I didn't think of that one yet.
Could I pass the ip address of the BES through the main method of the app using the project jad file?

I think I will store the XML file on the server.
I will need to use a web service in my application anyways so I will make another one that returns all the settings I need.
Thank you very much for you assistance.
