Askin for some features

¡Hi! In may company we are planning for develop a new PlayBook application.

 

We must know about availabity for some features. ¿could you tell me about this? More exactly, we'll need:

 

- Http/https communication

- XML parsing

- Geolocalization

- Maps

 

I know there's no problem with first two, but, it will be possible, through new PlayBook ActionScript API, self-localization and POI-localization over a Map component?

 

Thanks in advance.

Geo-location API is available, but not in the current release of the simulator.

Maps can be added from the AS3 version of Google Maps.  Very easy and flexible API for interactive maps.

Re: Askin for some features

If you are thinking about connecting your application to XML service over HTTP (or HTTPS), then you should know that there is genious generator for it built in into FlashBuilder. You will not have to parse XML on your own, just specify what is where in the wizard. It is supporting various versions of services, SOAP and even JSON based ones.

 

Very, very usefull thing.
