RIM releases Networking Diagnostic Tool


bes network

While stumbling around RIM’s Knowledge Center earlier today (yes, I do that from time to time), I noticed that RIM has released a networking diagnostic tool that should be of some use to all the new BlackBerry developers out there post-BBDC. Separate from the on-device hardware diagnostic tool we told you about last month, the networking diagnostic tool provides value in two different ways:

    1) The NDT can be used by 3rd party developers as a support tool for their customers with networking issues, to provide information on which transports are and are not working on the device. This functionality better enables developers to diagnose and troubleshoot connectivity issues without having to use their application.

    2) The NDT provides an open source and best practices implementation of connectivity on the BlackBerry. Developers can use this implementation as an example on how they would connect using the variety of mechanisms available on the BlackBerry device.
