Host BlackBerry apps for download on IIS

BlackBerry, Servers Add comments

You can host your compiled and Signed app on your website for end-users to download to their phones without uploading to the BlackBerry app store.

  • After you compile and sign your app, copy all the output files to a directory on your webserver
  • Create an html page that points to the .jad file
    Example: <a href=myapp.jad>Download BlackBerry app</a>
  • Modify the Mime-Types on that directory to allow downloading .jad and .cod files
  • In IIS select your website, click on Mime Types
  • Add a new type,
    use .jad for File name extension
    and text/  for Mime type
  • Add (or edit existing) .cod type
    use: .cod for File name extension
    type: application/vnd.rim.cod for Mime type
