Android App to BB 10 App

Hi Every One

 

I am working on an android application. I want to convert it for BB10 .

I installed BB10 native and sign it.  But my Android Eclipse is not showing BB10 SDK or even it is not showing " Add Blackberry nature to project.". Please suggest something.

 

Or suggest a simple process to convert Android app to BB10 Compatible 

Please use plain text.

Re: Android App to BB 10 App

You are actually in the wrong forum, you will get better answers to Android questions here:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Android-Runtime-Development/bd-p/adt

 

But really you can probably find out all you need by visting the Android micro-site here:

http://developer.blackberry.com/android/

especially the repackaging tools:

Good luck with this.

Re: Android App to BB 10 App

As I understand it you can use one of the following three options:

 

a) Install the ADT plug in to your Android Eclipse and build direct

b) Install the command line tool and package the apk into a bar

c) Use the Web tool install of (b).

 

I think, regardless of the way you do this, you will need to get BB10 signing keys.  I have only got experience of (b), and in that process, one of the steps involves signing using the BB10 keys you get from BlackBerry.  My experience is that the Android micro-site (that I have already pointed you at), describes the process I used quite well

 

There is no value to you installing the native SDK.

 

But please continue this discussion on the Android forum, not here.

Re: Android App to BB 10 App

Hello ankurnema12,

 

Thanks for dropping into the forums!

 

As Peter mentioned, the Native SDK wouldn't be of much use here. Within your eclipse-based ADT environment, you can install the BlackBerry Plug-in for ADT via an update site directed to  http://developer.blackberry.com/android/downloads/eclipseplugin/

 

This process is described in detail at  https://developer.blackberry.com/android/documentation/install_plugin_prerequisites_1895476_11.html

 

If your signature keys are already registered to your machine, they will be recognized by the ADT plug-in. If not, there is an option within the Bar Signer options to register keys..

 

Good luck in your future BlackBerry 10 development!
