if you want to develop in java for playbook then you must develop it as a android application then port it using one of the tools. Playbook native is c++, not Java. There are other options ontop of that with Adobe Air being supported as well as HTML5 via WebWorks

We all want to work in Java.  Unfortunately the only way java is supported is by learning Android and doing Android development for the PlayBook.   I for one don't really want to learn Android, so I will be swapping to C++. 

 

Edit:

I stand corrected, we don't all want to work in Java!.  See below....  Smiley Wink

Re: How to start playbook development

Personally I think that you will find ActionScript to be most similiar to Java.
