Default Programmatically detect a push browser channel

Please Login to Remove!

when a server makes a push browser channel, an icon shows up in blackberry home screen. Is there any way to detect that push programmatically?

I wouldn't think so. The semantics of the push on the Blackberry side are similar to a TCP server socket accept. You would probably have to listen to the browser channel push port. I haven't tried it but normally only one thread is allowed to get a particular connection. On the Blackberry I would think only one thread at a time could listen to a particular port. Since the OS/Browser listens to the browser channel push port I doubt it could be done.

You can, if you have access to the MDS server of a paired BES or Unite server, push data to an otherwise unused port, and write an app for the blackberry to listen to that port.
