Method Detail

register

public static boolean register(int syncConstant,
                               long associatedDataConstant,
                               boolean up,
                               boolean down)
Allows a third party developer to add a syncConstant (for use with the desktop software) and a long for the associatedData.

in other words, you can write desktop software to sync with the Key Stores and automatically add data to the associatedData of an object. On upload to the desktop, it will also send this information to the desktop if desired.

Due to the nature of the AssociatedData structure one should not attempt to send anything other than byte[] to and from the desktop using this method. As well, if there are multiple entries returned from the associated data structure under the constant given then ALL of them will be sent to the desktop in the order they were received each with the same constant.

It is also important to note that the registration "database" is not persisted which means if the device resets you are going to have to register your constants again.

Parameters:
syncConstant - This is the constant that should be used to sync data back and forth between the desktop software. It must be greater than 100 (RIM needs some of the constants) or an IllegalArgumentException will be thrown.
associatedDataConstant - This represents the long that will be used to store the data in the associatedData structure (and the one to retrieve it on upload).
up - This boolean denotes whether or not this item should be sent up to the desktop.
down - This boolean denotes whether or not this item should be expected to be received from the desktop.
Returns:
A boolean dictating whether or not the information was registered successfully. It could fail if the sync constant is already taken or if both booleans are false.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - Thrown if the sync constant is less than 100.
