Default Automatic launch of a Blackberry java app after install

Please Login to Remove!

Is this possible to start the application automatically right after it was installed OTA, for example? I am NOT talking about launching it automatically when device starts.

I suspect that some people have difficulty finding the application among all installed programs after it was installed, especially since it's a new icon. It would really help to have it launch automatically.

Thanks in advance.

The only what I've found to do that is to compile the app to start when the device starts automatically. FWIW OS in 4.6, maybe earlier, the browser asks if you want to run the program just after you do an OTA install.
