Google Gears Local Server support

I am currently evaluating the gears support on the new BlackBerry OS 5 and I noticed that Local Server functionality is not yet implemented. Are there any plans to do so and in what time frame? Is there any other way to use or replicate that functionality?

 

Thanks.

There is no support for LocalServer in Gears on the 5.0 operating system.  A similar approach can be done within a widget where you can cache local data on the media card.

Thank you for your answer, but this does not fully replicate the Local Server functionality.

Are there any plans to implement it on the BlackBerry and what is the time frame?

Sorry... I don't have any information on if or when it would be supported.
