Error compiling webworks application with feature id=blackberry.app.event

Hi Everyone,


I have a relatively simple webworks app I'm working on and I decided to try adding a menu on swipeDown using the guide here:




It doesn't mention it in the article, but looking at the sample app, you need to add the feature line to the config.xml:


  <feature id="blackberry.app.event" version=""/>


When I add it, compiling fails. I get "Error: Can not resolve a multiname reference unambiguously. JSON ...". It apparently finds JSON in both the SDK/frameworks/libs/air/airglobal.swc and in JSON.as in a temp folder created when I compile. I tried renaming one file, then the other, didn't help. Anyone see this issue or have any ideas? using SDK, AIR SDK 3 (and i changed the line to 2.7) If I remove that feature, the app compiles just fine.


Thanks for the help

Hi ptterb,


Please retry using the newest SDK 2.2 and I believe this should be fixed.
