Why do we get everything last?

Re: Ad networks working for BlackBerry 10 - Webworks apps?

[ Edited ]

Unfortunately I don't have a timeline for the official Ad SDK implementation. I don't mean it as an excuse for the delay, but WebWorks tends to trail behind native due to its reliance on the native APIs. Basically it must be implemented there / working before we can implement it in WebWorks (generally.) Following that, there's the question of prioritization and resourcing based on other APIs being worked on. Technically, someone could write a WebWorks/native extension to tie into the existing APIs which is what my next endeavour will be so that we're getting the same fill-rate / functionality as the native side (as opposed to this initial web service implementation.)

 

On the commuity API side, I do apologize for the delay. Friday's ice storm in Waterloo knocked out power in a lot of the city and threw me off track a little bit. I'm just awating one final approval and will have the community (web service) API posted hopefully today/tomorrow.

Re: Ad networks working for BlackBerry 10 - Webworks apps?

UPDATE

 

Today I went deep-diving into the BBOS way of the SDK and found a few things I was missing in my implementation. The hope is that this will improve the fill rate as now I will have properly formatted requests to the web service. It's getting on 8:15PM here so I'll be adding the missing pieces in the AM. The good news is that the functionality should mimic the BBOS approach rather closely; it's still missing some flashiness but that's always a Phase 2 thing :-)

 

The good news, is that I have a green light to post to Github. As soon as I've made the few changes above, I'll be putting in the request to push the sample online. Targeting by EOD tomorrow.

 

I do appreciate the patience all.

UPDATE

 

Pull request submitted here:

https://github.com/blackberry/BB10-WebWorks-Community-Samples/pull/45

 

 

Any and all feedback is welcome here, in Github, or fire me an email directly (eoros@blackberry.com). I've tried to mimic BBOS where I could but the overall approach is slightly different. If you find any issues or have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out (pull requests are acceptable as well.) :-)

 

And now we wait, one last (for now) time.

 

EDIT: And we're a go!

Re: Ad networks working for BlackBerry 10 - Webworks apps?

Thank you Erik!
Maybe it would be worth creating a sticky post/kb article.

Re: Ad networks working for BlackBerry 10 - Webworks apps?

@interfaSys: That's a good idea. I'll put together a KB along with a sticky post once it's in. Should be up in a few days, hopefully by then we've hashed out any glaring errors in my original submission :-)
