possible to deploy .air files to the Playbook simulator?

I've looked through the small amount of documentation out there and I've seen the build process for an actionscript application that results in a .bar file. Is it possible to deploy a .air file to the playbook as well?

 

I'm guessing just not at this point?

You can to unzip air package and re-package into bar file. Automatic conversion is not supported yet.

No, you must package the AIR application as a .bar file and then deploy to the PlayBook.

how do you go about compiling the .bar file from the unzipped .air file? I have created a .air file in Dreamweaver and would really like to get it to run with the simulator.

From my understanding .air is a zip archive, try to rename it to .zip and extract

I got as far as that yesterday, but then what? I need to get those files into a .bar file. All it is is a few .html files and an image folder with images in it. It basically runs like a website.
