Default Application Migration

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I'm a newbie in Blackberry development, so please bear with me.!!

We have a database application in house and would like to port parts of it to Blackberry. we don't have any blackberry infrastructure.

What do I need to get this done ? The users would sync with the main database a few times a day.

What version of BES server do I need and what is the best way (easiest) to get started.

Appreciate all your help.

You don't need BES just because you want to write a BB app that access your host database. BES provides a bunch of infrastructure for managing mail, contacts, and calendars, we well as enterprise management of a large BB device fleet.

There is no simple answer to your question: it depends on your development skills, server infrastructure, etc.

What does your server-side infrastructure look like?

Default Server

Hi and thank you for your response.

We have 6 database servers (SQL Server) and 4 web servers (Application server) of which 2 are exposed to the internet.

As far as development skills go, we have expereinced Java Swing and Java server side developers and a .NET developer.
