Notification Bar access

Is it possible for webworks based apps to post notifications in the bb notification bar if an event happens while they are running in the background?

Check here. The feature is called "Banner indicator" and according to RIM is under active development.

Re: Notification Bar access

yup.. you'll see in our Epsilon release we plan to add the notification/banner indicator api

You can update your home screen app icon today through JavaScript, but this new api will allow you to add an icon and count to the top banner/notification area of the screen
