Hi, i've been searching through google for a while on how to implement the facebook single sign-on for blackberry widget apps. i'm ccurrently working on an app that requires this feature, the only solution i found was an SDK but it's for only Blackberry java applications.
And the only other option,an implementation using their Facebook's Web API , i doubt will work because it has to go through the facebook website.
Please can anyone offer any options.
NB: if there are none, i'll just go the java ROUTE.
Thanks in advance.

Would it be possible to make the extension?
Would there be permission issues with the Facebook API?
I do not know if it would be so easy.
Does anyone have any examples to start?
I wish I had a Facebook extension for use in a widget.

That would be nice.
NB: I was the one who asked the question initially.
If you have any prior experience with Java, that would be the best route if you really need the Facebook single sign-on for apps.
I'm currently working on an app that requires this feature and since there was no option to use it with widgets, i had to go the java route.
Even without extensive java knowledge, you could still pull it off (AND it also comes packed with a HttpConnectionFactory & HttpClient classes -- which simplifies making Http requests).
You can get it here : https://sourceforge.net/projects/facebook-bb-sdk/
Check out the sample app by running it on your simulator...Study the classes and try to understand the interactions between the classes.
Merry Christmas in advance
