How does a application install link from webpage to cell phone differ from a normal webpage link?
I want to add a link to a webpage that will download an application to my phone. I am not sure if there is a difference between a regular link and one that would install an app to a cell phone.
My app is in a JAR file. Do I need to make a CAB out of it? Is there some resource on the web that would give me more detailed info?

The links would actually be the same..even the phone opens pages in html format. Usual sites just have 2 seperate links - 1 for PC install and 1 for Phone install because they use different formats.
Most Phone app installers are cab files that extract and install on the phone.
Usual PC formats are .exe or .msi formats.
