I've got all the basic theory I need for the actual extension I need
We have no details on writing one yet
Any pointers or ETA on documentation would be very helpful

However, one can get started now and see how some of the pieces will fit together.
Take a look at how the existing APIs have been created:
C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK 18.104.22.168\Framework\ext\blackberry.system
There are always 2 files, one for the client = your app (client.js) and one for the server = device OS (index.js)

The particular tech I need to integrate rapidly is NFC
M Wooley has pointed me at all the correct stuff so I have the foundation for an extension that will work on my DevAlpha
We're having a DevCamp last week in July specifically for BB10
A week or two (TBA) later I'll be getting a post-Jam recall to London (I know they ain't announced it - I like to be well informed)
There's a big fuss about BB10 & NFC so rather than present the pitch with 'here's an NFC sticker - imagine my BB10 goes beep' I want my BB10 to actually go beep
We're working on a medical solution that will be really impressive as part of our DevCamp

That's excellent to hear. I've also engaged Martin on producing an NFC API for WebWorks + BB10.
The missing piece to this is still the native integration layer, that the WebWorks R&D team are currently working to finalize. Once that is in place, we can start on these types of extensions
Unfortunately I don't have an ETA to share, and cannot confirm at this time if it will be ready in time for your July meetup.

Any news from the WebWorks R&D on the native integration layer? Would be nice to have to go on with 3rd party extensions. Also very interesting is NFC since the Native SDK already has an example app it would be nice to get the API + a port of the example for the WebWorks part of BB10.
I already added a request for it to the BB10-WebWorks-Examples github repo.

Use macromedia dreamweaver
For what? From what I understand from Adams post they need to write an extension-bridge to be able to access the native functionality and hardware features in WebWorks since WebWorks isn't as powerful as a C/C++ environment where we in WebWorks (only) have our HTML, CSS and JS.
BTW: can you stop spamming older threads with useless input. Wrote this in the time you added useless texts to 4 other posts.

No public info available yet for an release date for extensions. The teams are still actively working on a solution.
"As a WebWorks extension developer, I can build an extension in the Native SDK from a template project" :

thx very much for those information. Hopefully we see updates very soon. Next date for API updates is ~ Aug. 7th I saw in your BB10 Jam session you presented in Berlin (couldn't wait for the BB10 Dev Alpha in my hands ;-) ), hope you are on your timeline!!

Wow. It seems we already have the first example of how to build a WebWorks Extension to be able to extend a WebWorks app with some more native functionality: https://github.com/blackberry-webworks/BB10-WebWor
Has anybody already tested in more details if and how it works with the latest BB10 WebWorks SDK 22.214.171.124?
