Guide: Deploying a WebWorks app to the PlayBook

[ Edited ]

Hi guys,

 

I've recently struggled with the process of deploying a BlackBerry WebWorks app I'm creating using jQuery Mobile to my actual PlayBook device, as I'd like to ensure that the performance of the app is acceptable for end users.

 

I've finally got the process working, and I'd like to document it both for myself and for anyone else who needs to go through it. I suspect I may have a few unnecessary steps or incomplete/incorrect explanations in there, so along with providing help I'd like critical eyes to let me know if I can tighten up the language anywhere.

 

I'd copy and paste the entire thing into the message body, but after struggling to get the formatting right a couple of times I've ceased my attempts at that for the moment. So here's a link to the guide. Hope it helps someone.

I don't think step 8 is necessary for WebWorks.

Also, my biggest advice would be to write a batch/ant/bash script so that you can update your app or install it with just one command.

When blackberry-tablet.xml isn't present in my *.BAR file, my Step Nine returns the error:

 

result::failure 500 Application author does not match debug token author.

 

Could I be missing something else here?

Could someone please write a sample batch/ant/bash script for us to use?

It would be really helpful...

Thanks all in advance.

You should Google it, there are quite a few examples.

Re: Docs to Go ACTION_OPEN

I know how to invoke most playbook apps, but how do you invoke the Documents To Go suite of applications .

 

Is it like invoking a Browser

 

<script type="text/javascript">

function startDocs2Go() {
             var args = new blackberry.invoke.Docs2GoArguments();
             args.open = blackberry.invoke.Docs2GoArguments.ACTION_OPEN;

             blackberry.invoke.invoke(blackberry.invoke.APP_Docs2Go, args);
}
 
startDocs2Go();
</script>

I know this isnt right but what is please....
