Re: Blackberry Application Development


if I understand correctly, you want your application pool to be able to export results to a webpage that will find a way to identify the user, and deliver a report that he/she can browser on his/her Blackberry screen.
  • The web server must be reachable by your Blackberry. Check the BES settings so that happens correctly.
  • You must find a way to convert a Cristal report into a web page. That's either using the option if available, or having a developer of yours do that. don't use client-side XSL. It's intellectually elegant but crap in the real world.
  • the HTML code of the webpage must be simple and validate the W3 validator.
  • for identification of the user, it can be very classical : a form with credentials login/password. Or you can see what are the available functions to get the Blackberry's PIN and match it to your user database.


You can find all documentation on the SUPPORT section of the Blackberry.com website. After reading all the PDFs, there will certainly be people available on the forum to answer specific questions to help you. Good luck.
