Java

Can you still develop Java apps for Blackberries and Playbook? I heard something to the contrary and was wondering if Java was still supported or would require some sort of conversion / import? Thanks.

Re: Java

BB Java is not supported on BB10 or on the playbook. There is no migration facility. Applications must be re-written in C++ using the new dev environment.

Re: Java

if you want to code in java you can go with android run time for BB10. 

BB 4.0 to 7.1 supported JAVA.

Thanks

Re: Java

Android runtime? So I can program in Java still and then what? Does Android runtime convert my Java code in C++ code usable on the BB and Playbook? I'm kind of annoyed since I just bought a Java developer book for BB.

by the android run time you can convert android apps into BB/Playbook apps.
