i have made a android application which
tracks user location as a background service
does proximity checks/geofencing and gives alerts
recieves push notifications
connects to a mysql database and updates device
now the client has asked to do the same for the blackberry.. is it posible to do the above in webworks?
i have seen a webworks sample for location .. how about the background process other things?
can someone plz point me in the right direction...

I have nearly the same project request. I created background-running apps in Java for blackberry but I can't find a way for Playbook or especially for WebWorks Apps on Playbook.
Is there a way to get this job done?

i have now managed to create a webworks project with a background listener page which updates the location with a setinterval of 12000 .. is this the right way to get location changes?
i tried using the watchposition , but doesnt work in the simulator ... how do i test the background listener in the simulator? or does it have to be tested on the device?
hey levion... can we have a chat on this?

I've just recentely added geofencing to my app, and was now in the process of looking for a way to have it checked on the background too.
Please let me know if you take this discussion somewhere else,I'm interested too

did you face this problem? http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-Web
<rim:background> in config.xml could be the key. But it's not available on Playbook, yet
