Facebook Connection in WebWorks for Smartphone


I am using javascript and html to develope a WebWorks app for 9800.
In the application, one of the feature is Facebook connection.

I downloaded the latest Facebook Blackberry SDK (0.8.24) from

When I use that sdk in a Blackberry Java application and call the method "refreshAccessToken(true)", it is able to show the Facebook login page and premission granting page.

However, when I call the same method in the Java Extension of WebWorks project, it returns a error message "Unable to refresh access token.".

How can I show the Facebook login page in WebWorks app?

Are there any classes or method that are supported in Java application but not in WebWorks application?

Also, are there any other methods can connect to Facebook in WebWorks application?
