To distribute my BlackBerry application over-the-air (OTA) in the past, I would package my main application, MyApp, and package a linked library application, MyLibrary, containing the main application's resources separately. Then, I would copy the COD/JAD files from the library application into the same directory as the COD/JAD files of the main application and run UpdateJad.exe on MyApp.jad and MyLibrary.jad. At that point, I would upload all of the files to my web server (with the correct .htaccess file) and I could download my application onto devices with no problem.
That was some time ago (one to two years). Now, I'm updating my application and trying to do it again. I notice, however, that when I package my main application, Eclipse generates COD/JAD files for BOTH the library application AND the main application in the same directory of the main application project (deliverables>Web>7.1.0). I don't believe this happened in the past. That directory now contains:
Now, I've tried uploading my application several ways, and each way yields a "907 Invalid COD" error:
But nothing works! However, if I install the app via MyApp.alx through BlackBerry Desktop Manager, it works. Does anyone know what might be going on here?

Update: I am receiving the same error for OS 5/6 versions of my application too, which do not have a linked library application. All I am doing is uploading the generated files to a webserver, and pointing the device to MyApp.jad. I receive a "Download Failed" for reason of "907 Invalid Cod". Did something change recently in terms of specifying the following in an .htaccess file on the web server?
AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod

I might depend on how you configure the system, but I have found the the ...._full.jad is just that, a full jad which already includes the cods for the Library and the main application. I don't know if this was a recent change since I have only recently moved t using Eclipse. So try the ..._full jad.
Not sure about your OS 5.0 issue, let us resolve the other issue first.

I believe that I have resolved the issue. I realized that I was having problems uploading files to my webserver over the past couple of days using my standard FTP clients. Once I uploaded the COD/JAD files to another web server, the download and installation worked with no problem (using MyApp_full.jad).
I appreciate your quick response to help!
