How do I install an application programmatically on BlackBerry OS 10?
For BlackBerry Java OS (until OS 7), we have this excellent article how to install an application programmatically:
We use this to distribute enterprise internal apps. This is an essential functionality for enterprises. But of course, this works different in BlackBerry OS 10.
I cannot find a similar API for BlackBerry OS 10. I would appreciate if somebody would point me to the API that is similar to the former CodeModuleManager and CodeModuleGroup that allows to programmatically install applications. Does a similar article like the one mentioned above exist that works for OS 10 and PlayBook?
Thanks in advance!

There is no api to do this all downloads are handled by BBW.
The closest you could get to what you want to do is to hook into the in-app payment apis and add functionality to your core app.
There are other solutions to do with sideloading but this is probably too cumbersome for your users, search the forum for the many other thread requests similar to your own.

Please do not misunderstand me, the in-app payment apis cannot install applications.
All they can do is either unlock code or install a module that can be run within your own app.
For your problem you may be able to set this up on the BES side where your apps are only available to your business customers through a section in BBW and a server you control.
I have no experience of this however so can't help further.
