Playbook Qnx components: license

Hi All,

 

I'm going to build a multiscreen application targetting Playbook too.

Qnx components included into the Playbook AIR SDK are solid and flexible and I'm planning to use some of them for my development.

 

My question is: can I use Qnx components on the same project but running on other platforms (Android etc..)? I was not able to find any information about components' license in the SDK (just the Adobe license is included).

 

Anyone having some news?

 

Thanks a lot,

Leonardo

Native C++ API is not yet available. QNX components would be at that level. Not certain if they will stay "qnx"ish on the PB or all will have the BB look and feel to them. "QNX" library for AIR applications have the BB look and feel. You might want to post and check out the AIR forum for the PB for more info.

Hi John,

Thanks for your quick reply. My concern is related to the "License" to use those components on other platform different than BlackBerry (AIR Mobile projects though).

Re: Playbook Qnx components: license

When you install the SDK, there is a license. I have never read it. When the C++ SDK comes out, i guess the EULA would have something about distribution. Has anyone read the AIR SDK EULA?

Re: Playbook Qnx components: license

Hi,

 

I found this statement into the SDK License:

 

The QNX Momentics Tools contain various Third Party Software licensed under various open source licenses.  Such open source software and the associated open source licenses are identified in the QNX License Guide available at http://licensing.qnx.com/license-guide/ and the corresponding Third Party License Terms List available at http://licensing.qnx.com/third-party-terms/.

 

I had a look at the Qnx license documents and it seems that it should be safe to use Qnx components for free-for-end-users applications... Am I right? Can anyone point me to the right direction?

 

Thanks,

Leo

The EULA in the SDK installation dialog only mentions In-App Purchases/Products and use of the BlackBerry Payment Service and topics related specifically to those items.

 

I could almost swear there is an older thread (WAY older) that asks this same question, and got an answer. I can't find it though. Hopefully this one sheds some light.

Re: Playbook Qnx components: license

is it forbidden to rebuild the qnx components in as3? that could lead to a reusable framework.

Re: Playbook Qnx components: license

Most components run fine on desktop or other devices. Some require PPS but there are work arounds to that. Some have posted how to fake out the existance of PPS.
