Re: how load a complete web app on a blackberry app

As long as you control the sources it's possible using a stub and MANIFEST.MF


Basically you have a 'stub app' The stub app basically acts as a loader / launcher for anything else.


e.g. you might have a selection of web apps on  a server which are updated frequently. The stub app downloads the latest list and lets you get / launch other apps


If you've already downloaded one of the apps the launcher launches it, if not it can fetch it then launch it


Read up on MANIFEST.MF as that's the vital part of making something like this work


Note that you'd need to dynamically create the MANIFEST.MF on the fly per user


That's the basics
