Re: Merging 2 bar file



There is no way to mix Android applications and native libraries.

In your case I believe the best user experience could be achieved if you implement your UI in Cascades.


Also, you could try to build your native code with the Android NDK and link that Android native library to your Android project. This way you will get an .apk which can be converted to .bar. However in this case you can target only OS 10.2 and newer.

Here you have some reading on the Android native support: https://developer.blackberry.com/android/apisupport/android_native_support.html
