Enabling WAP/HTML Content Download with OMA DLOTA

Overview

This document describes how Brew ® MP supports the implementation of a native application-download service using OMA DLOTA (Open Mobile Alliance Download Over-the-Air) version 1. 0.

To support an HTML- and XHTML-based application-store browsing experience, you may implement a two-part download/install experience. OMA DLOTA version 1.0 standard provides such a mechanism.

This implementation requires that two components be implemented on the device:

  • A Brew MP Package Handler that supports DLOTA protocol and registers with the operating system for the application/vnd.oma.dd and the application/vnd.qualcomm.bmp.pkg mime types
  • A browser implementation that supports the invocation of the Package Handler for the application/vnd.oma.dd and the application/vnd.qualcomm.bmp.pkg mime types

Support for this download architecture allows device manufacturers, mobile network operators, and other mobile application service providers to create application and content management and delivery solutions that are independent of one another.

The focus of this paper and the implementation described herein is intended for the download and installation of native Brew MP applications. That said, the techniques described for creating, registering, and invoking handlers using OMA DLOTA are applicable to any content-type.
