How to open the BlackBerry Share Card?


I would like to invoke the BlackBerry Share Card frmo my Air based app. (I'm not using a BlackBerry SDK)

Can it be done such as invoking a single service such as BBM (target: sys.bbm.sharehandler) but with an other targer handler?
If so what's the handler for the Share Card?

import qnx.fuse.ui.core.InvokeActionItem;
import qnx.fuse.ui.core.ActionSet;
import qnx.fuse.ui.core.ActionBase;

function invokeInviteBBM(e:Event=null):void {
var byteData:ByteArray = new ByteArray();
var requestBBM:InvokeRequest = new InvokeRequest();
requestBBM.mimeType = "text/plain";
requestBBM.target = "sys.bbm.sharehandler";
requestBBM.action = InvokeAction.SHARE;
requestBBM.data = byteData;


Thank you
