Hi guys, I'm completely brand new to Blackberry development and I'm trying now to understand how BBM works on the latest BB10. I looked through a lot of documentation (webcasts as well) and I noticed you can do impressive things. As a first attempt, I started focusing on a simple task such as sharing a link that is inside my app with BBM peers, but I ran into a couple of problems/doubts.
My reference SDK is Webworks and, as far as I understood, the first mandatory step is registering the app in the platform..unfortunately, as soon as it happens, the app goes idle showing the spinner. The code I implemented is exactly the same you can find in the Webworks API documentation examples:
Another point is that I wasn't able to find any hook to the APIs that allows a user to share a link with his/her contacts, as my original purpose was intended..
Am I tryng to achieve something that is not foreseen?What is really meant when you call "shareContent" as described here: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackb
Thanks a lot for your time
Solved! Go to Solution.

A brief update: I'm now able to start the registration process, but as soon as I'm "redirected" to the default Dev Alpha BBM application (in order to register myself as a BBM user) it gets stuck and nothing happens..
Thanks again for your time

What behaviour do you see when you open the BBM Client itself? Below is a link to a BBM SP sample for WebWorks.
Note that you do have to register first if you use any of the BBM SP APIs. However, if you use the invocation framework to invoke the BBM Client, bringing it into your app as a card you do not have to register.

thanks for the samples..anyway, you are right, I needed to register myself in order to make the BBM app works..sorry for that since I'm completely new to BB in general, but I was expecting, al least, to receive a warning complaining for a missing blackberry ID.. a never-ending spinner is not so intuitive..
Thanks for your time!
