Hi all,

I was wondering whether writing a wrapper over mShop is possible or not. Does mShop provide any mechanism by which my application can get the catalog information etc. without mShop itself becoming active? {I am not talking about the normal URLs provided by mShop (“cmShop:Catalog”, “cmshop:SilentUpgradeCheck= %u&Url=%s” etc.) in which it will continue to be the active application.} My app needs to get the raw data somehow from mShop for this right? Is there a way to get it (either from mShop or otherwise :) )?

Can anyone please help me out here?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
As far as I know, you could get the catalog information only when mShop is active. Actually the catalog information in mShop is fetched from ADS (Application Download Server). mShop implementation would have the calls to speak to ADS.
In you case, you need to look for APIs to make connection with ADS and probably look for more APIs to fetch the catalog, category listing from ADS. When you're able to do this without depending on mShop, your problem would be solved. I'm not remembering the APIs at the moment. I'll give you more information on this once I find out something on this. :)
