Is there any versioning problem with BBM/ App World



Is there any problem with BBM server ?

I released my BBM application on BB App World. It show friend list perfectly.

But when I released new version of that App on the BB App World.

Now the friends having old version do not show friends having new version in their contact list.

So Is  there any versioning problem with BBM Server/ App World ?




Thanks and Regards

My understanding, and I haven't had any experience with this, is that the matching of applications is done using the UUID that you set.  So did you change this?

Hello Mudassir,


How are you doing? I hope all is well.


If your contact lists have a particular versions of an application installed ( say v2.5) and I have a new version of the application (example 2.7), when I retrieve my friend's list using the ContactListService, I will still see the users who have installed the application. The ContactListService is version independent. 


As a test you can change the version number of the BBMSDKDemo removing features, and you would still be able to retrieve the contact lists of BBM Contacts who have different versions of the app.


In reiterating Peter Strange's point, have you changed the UUID of your current version in comparison to the application that is available on App World?


Looking forward to your reply.
