Yeah, the title doesn't quite cut it, so I'll explain:
The new BB10 AIR SDK contains 4 SWC libraries and 4 Adobe Native Extensions.
The 4 SWCs I can deal with, but why are there 4 Native Extension libraries?
If you take a look inside the ANE files (they are just zip archives), you will discover NO compiled binary code!
Example (QNXDevice.ane structure)
QNXDevice - catalog.xml
|-> ANE - extension.xml
|-> default - library.swf
As you can see, there are absolutely no binary files included!
Please tell me: Why are there ANE files, if they contain no native code, as the name would suggest?
Just remove, mimetype and the META-INF folder and call it a SWC. It's as simple as that...
