I have recently developed a business app v1.0 for blackberry in JDE 7.0.
I would like to know whether i can send v2.0 to my client as a software upgrade through SMS. Is it possible to upgrade the tables and code by receiving an SMS from the developer.
On my end, i would be sending all the code structs and table (schema remains same as v1.0). Is it really possible or the client will necessarily have to reinstall the software?
How is a blackberry application maintained by the developer once it has been deployed on client side.
Would really appreciate if someone could aid a response.

Thanks for a response. A link to the JAD would require an internet connectivity? Please elaborate some more. Can i send as an attachment in mail?

A link can be sent via SMS or via Email.
If you click on the link to a JAD file, this starts the BB program downloader. The JAD points to the COD file(s) and other components needed to update the program.
Yes, this requires internet connectivity.

How do developers traditionally inform clients of a version upgrade. Is any other alternative possible which makes an auto upgrade or installs a new package WITHOUT need for an internet connectivity.
Where would the upgrade come from?

You can build a desktop installation package (ALX) and the user can install it using Blackberry Desktop Manager.
This (ALX) is one of the build options in the JDE.
Other than that, you don't have any options (that I am aware of) that do not require connectivity.
