MDS Simulator

I am new to BB development and writing a java application which uses web services.


I am using the blackberry simulator for testing and the MDS simulator to provide internet connection.


Without the mds simulator the web service won't work since no internet connection.


The BB documentation states that MDS is part of BES. I am wondering if I am going to deploy my


application to a real device then does this device have to connect to a BES to get my web service


functioning? or is this just a restriction when using the BB simulator

Re: MDS Simulator

That'll depend on what transport route(s) your application is using.  You can read about the available options below.
