"OTA provisioning is the wireless delivery of applications and services over a secure network to mobile devices, including mobile handsets and PDAs."
it's a system that makes it VERY easy for devices to download new apps without the need for cable or any connection to your personal computer.
consists of several steps:
1. app discovery - mechanism that allows users to be notified or discover new MIDP apps that they can download.
2. download and verify the app descriptor - the device app management software downloads the app descriptor to check its size, version, and its applicability to the device being used by the enduser
3. download and execute the MIDP suite as a jar file wirelessly.
