How to install Tizen 2.4 app on Tizen B2B Digital Signage TV

1. Build a .wgt package

Right click on your project and click on "Build Package".
This will generate a .wgt file at the root level of your project.

2. Place package on a server 

Copy the above generated .wgt file into an accessible directory on your web or HTTP server.
In the same folder, place a file named sssp_config.xml
This is a descriptor file that the TV use in order to locate the app, and also to identify version upgrade.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
As you can see, the file contains three fields:
1. ver - The version of the app.
If the version in the sssp_config.xml file is greater than the one already installed, then the TV will install the new package.
2. size - Size of .wgt file in kilobytes.
3. widgetname - Name of .wgt file without the extension.

3. Install Web App.

  1. Press the "Home" button on your TV remote control
  2. Pick "URL Launcher Settings"
  3. Pick "Install Web App"
  4. Insert URL to the directory that the package is located at.
