Device Restarts after Application Uninstall

Hello! Smiley Happy

 

I have developed a Blackberry Widget Application.

 

The issue that I am facing is that whenever I update my application on the physical device, the device needs  to be restarted.

 

How do I avoid this kind of behavior since restarting the device takes a lot of time.

 

Thanks,

Kunal

Hi Kunal,

 

There really isn't anything you can do to avoid this.  There are various conditions that will cause the need for a reset after uninstalling an application and it is unfortunately out of a developer's control.

So this behavior is independent of whether the Application is a Blackberry Widget App or a Blackberry Java App ?

That is correct... there isn't a specific tie to the fact that it is either a widget or Java application.  There are multiple different factors that will require a re-boot.
