OAuth 2.0 allows mobile applications to access server resources, on behalf of the resource owner, using a secure open authorization protocol without the need to share user credentials such as username or password.
The browser in Nokia Asha software platform 1.1 based devices support invocation via the Content Handler API (JSR 211). This interface allows MIDlets to use the browser to perform OAuth based authentication and get back an access token.
The browser registers as a content handler with the ID com.nokia.browser, which should be set in the invocation object. MIDlets wishing to use the browser via this interface should check that this feature is supported by checking the registry for a content handler with this ID. It is not necessary to specify any particular MIME type in the invocation.
