Embedding SIS Data At Delivery Time
I need to insert some configuration data at the time when the SIS file is downloaded to the user's handset. The configuration data varies depending on who the user is and a number of other factors meaning we can't prepackage the SIS file with the config data.
I was wondering if anybody had an idea for solving this?
We thought this approach might work:
At delivery time:
1. Unpack the SIS file using unsis.
2. Write the appropriate config data inside the extracted SIS directory structure in a text file.
3. Repack using makesis.
Any comments on this approach or any better alternatives?
Re: Embedding SIS Data At Delivery Time
It is OK, although unpacking a the .sis all the time is a bit redundant.
You may also check if makesis ([url]http://www.symbian.com/developer/downloads/files/SDN_makesis_release.zip[/url]) can be modified to append a file to an existing .sis, but I doubt it worths the effort.
