I wanted to see if this scenario is possible:
1. User launches standard BlackBerry Browser and launches a page by clicking on a bookmark.
2. Once the page loads there is a special link on the page which has been registered using the HttpFilter API
3. When the user clicks the link the native app is launched (since it has been registered with the HttpFilter
I am pretty sure it is possible since RIM has done this with BlackBerry App World. When you click on a link to BlackBerry App World in your Browser it will launch the BlackBerry App World native application.
So here is my question:
1. Is this possible (not just for RIM but for us external developers)?
2. Is this done via HTTPFilter API or or the string/pattern matching API which I have read about?
3. Is it possible to pass in parameters from the URL to the native app. Again, i think it is since that is what the BlackBerry App World does but I just want to be sure.

A minor follow-up question.
If I trigger my app by subscribing to a HTTP filter, will the parameters of the URL be passed into my native app?
