Giving this HTML5 functionality a real ride ... I can see why Google dumped Gears. But I digress.
The next phase of my little widget project is to bring down some binary files as attachments to messages. Typically these might be image files or text files.
The BB project is a port of an existing compact framework project; the attachments are currently going to the mobile from a web service method that returns a dataset. The dataset includes the message that the attachment is related to.
So, what's the best approach to doing this WITHOUT a dataset, while still maintaining the relation between the message and the attachment? As it stands now, the message is a JSON-formatted string. I'm really looking for a generalized approach with possibly pointers to some reference material.
