App World 1.1.0.11 breaks message list integration APIs?

App World 1.1.0.11 seems to break a number of the message list integration APIs. This is very easy to reproduce. The following runs fine on a 4.6+ device that does not have AW. Install AW and it throws a MissingResourceException. Uninstall AW and it starts working again.

 

 

import net.rim.device.api.system.Application; import net.rim.blackberry.api.messagelist.ApplicationMessageFolderRegistry; class MessageListIssueTester extends Application { public static void main(String[] args) { ApplicationMessageFolderRegistry.getInstance().setRootFolderName("Foo"); } }

N.B. the ApplicationMessageFolderRegistry.registerFolder() method also fails with the same exception but the above is sufficient to reproduce the problem. My application could work without changing the root folder name but absolutely must register new folders.

 

Can somebody in RIM confirm that this is an issue with App World 1.1.0.11?

 

If so, can you suggest a workaround or give an indication as to when this might be fixed?

Have you noticed any other APIs misbehaving?

Seriously RIM, how long does it take to build and run a one line application? Everyone knows the importance of a thriving 3rd party app market and Mike K says that good developer relations are a vital part of achieving this. Failure to catch a big bug like this in regression testing is difficult to understand but forgiveable. Failure to put your hand up and admit that this is the case is not.

I see App World 1.1.0.15 has been released with the message list integration APIs still broken.
