Which files to publish for OTA installation


I'm using the JDE eclipse plugin.

I saw that the deliverables folder contains the application files.

If I would use an OTA installation, which files and which folder structure should I use to allow the installation?


Thank you

Re: Which files to publish for OTA installation

It depends on what OTA option you are using.


To install via the browser, you need to deploy the JAD file and COD files to your web server.  Be sure to configure the required mime types on the server.

To install OTA via BlackBerry Enterprise Server application push, you deploy the ALX and COD files.

Hello Mark,

I followed the steps you posted for installation via the browser.

Everything worked fine.
