id element

Syntax

<id>transport method</id>

Description

The <id> element specifies the type and the order of the transport methods that you want to use for a BlackBerry WebWorks app. This element is optional. If you specify more than one transport method, the BlackBerry device attempts to use the transport methods that you specify, in order. By default, if you do not specify an <id> element, the connection manager uses the following order:
  • MDS: BlackBerry Enterprise Server
  • BIS-B: BlackBerry Internet Service
  • TCP_WIFI: Wi-Fi network
  • TCP_CELLULAR: Direct TCP stack
  • WAP2: WAP 2.0 gateway for a wireless service provider
  • WAP: WAP 1.0 gateway for a wireless service provider

If you are using the Push Service, you must specify the BlackBerry Internet Service transport method.
