Websockets for BB os 5

Hi everybody,

 

I am brand new in BB world and have some questions.

 

Is it possible to make app using websocket protocol on BB os 5?

And if it is, how to implement it? Is there some libraries or something? For example, Android has Autobahn implementation, but can't find for BB os 5.

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Websockets for BB os 5

welcome to the support forums.

as bb os is quite old many new designs are not available on it. i don't know about a websocket implementation, you could try to port Autobahn, but i doubt that you would get a good revenue in terms of invested time...

maybe you can use it via webworks/html5?
