What framworks are acceptable?

i see it mentions

 

https://developer.blackberry.com/builtforblackberry/documentation/criteria.html

 

that PhoneGap and Appcelerator framworks can be used, will there be a more exhaustive list, or can any suitable framework be used? i'm thinking dojo, marmalade, etc...

Re: What framworks are acceptable?

I didn't attend the Jam Americas session on this, but read some BBM messages from a couple of guys who did attend. Their comments were basically that any of those sorts of frameworks are just fine...

Provided you meet the rest of the requirements (e.g. Scoreloop integration for games, at least one BB10 service, etc) it sounds like pretty much anything can be used (except Android).

Maybe someone who did attend the relevant session could back up that claim or expand on it?

Re: What framworks are acceptable?

I was at the session. I think I remember Tom saying that ported Android apps could qualify if they had 4+ stars in Google Play store.

 

I`m not 100% sure on that though, it might have just been for porting a pre-existing app in general.

Re: What framworks are acceptable?

Hello Group,

 

The requirements for Scoreloop integration for games has since changed.  It is not a mandatory requirement to use Scoreloop within your game application in order to have it approved for BlackBerry World -- though it is highly recommended as it will add much value to your application.  

 

Please refer to:  Built for BlackBerry Criteria section and the BlackBerry App World Vendor Guidelines as all applications submitted must comply with the items outlined to be approved.  

 

Along with the main requirements, games require some additional criteria found here

 

(Note:  BlackBerry World criteria for Scoreloop section may need to be updated to include - "not a mandatory requirement")
