Writing access to asset folder? Possible or not?

Hi,

I have several JSON files in the app/native/assets/data folder which contain data for my application. In the app sources they are in the assets/data folder. I read that runtime only access to the root folder data will be allowed. However in both simulator and DevAlpha device i am able to write to the assets/data folder. Will this be different for production devices or has this changed?

Re: Writing access to asset folder? Possible or not?

You can read about the various folders that are available and the restrictions on them: http://developer.blackberry.com/native/documentation/bb10/com.qnx.doc.native_sdk.devguide/com.qnx.do...

 

The fact that you can write to the folder now is because your app is built with a "development mode" flag true. Once you export as a release build and sign it, that flag is cleared and your app is installed with the app/ folder read-only, as described in the page above.
