Can you please confirm which version of the WebWorks SDK you have installed?

The exe will be in the sdk folder itself.
Once you have downloaded the latest version of Webworks SDK, then installed it. the bbwp.exe will be in C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks SDK <version>
edit you project.properties files to set to this path.
also, chekc if you have double slashed \\ instead of \.
hope this helps

I have deployed phongap sample in emulator. it works ok.
how do i sign using rippple emulator? when i change the to phonegap from webworks it doesnot show settings option.
i still signed it using webworks. it opens up the signing tool & shows sample is being signed.
but it is not working in the actual device.
what could be wrong. pls help.
i am using ripple 0.9.0.16

Ripple can be used to test Phonegap functionality, but you will need to use Phonegap's packaging tools to create a BlackBerry application and subsequently sign it.

Phonegap is a great way to take one code base and compile it for various platforms (BlackBerry, iOS, Android, etc.) however you are correct that it does not add functionality beyond what you can do in each respective native platform to begin with.
Have you had a chance to connect Web Inspector to your application and see if any errors are being thrown? A generous use of console.write calls could also help determine where the application is breaking along with a multitude of try/catch statements.
Would it be possible to provide a screen shot of the rendering issues you're seeing as well as the code snippets for your application?

So I have decided to develop my app in WebWorks.
I have not read about using Web Inspector yet.
the geolocation app is the one i downloaded from webworks homepage.
i have been testing with the device indoors. i will try this outdoors this evening.

Depending on "how indoors" you are, that could cause a problem.
Here is some documentation on how to use Web Inspector to debug your application:
