It has been a while since RIM announced Java API won't be supported in BB10. Since then, they have released SDKs for:
So what would be the most similar platform to current Java API for BB10? I'm thinking on things like:
Thanks in advance.

RIM seems focused on the main platform being the NDK+Cascades.
Adobe Air seems to be the red headed stepchild that will be left behind.
Android is the popular kid they keep around to look cooler.
Webworks seems to be more of a side project.
So yea, go with the NDK.

I coughed up my coffee all over the keyboard. Probably the most accurate description I've read so far.
@OP - yeah, go with NDK. Not all things are possible on AIR or WebWorks or Android.
Also, so far as I recall, auto-run on startup isn't there in BB10, or maybe I missed something out?
I've got 99 problems and eclipse is all of them

There are two successor platforms, I believe:
LOL, very true.
I think at the end the NDK would be the only survivor (if there are survivors at all... time will tell). However, having to cope with C++ is a step backwards, its one of the most complex PL out there. Personally, I'd have drooled at BB10 had they go for Python or C#. IMHO they chose the language because they already have a large C++ codebase in QNX, and they need to release it as fast as they can or else disappear.
