Facebook Single sign-on for applications (Widgets)

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.

A good idea would be to develop a java extension and use it in your widget

Thanks all the same.

Re: Facebook Single sign-on for applications (Widgets)

Hello everyone.

  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.

Thanks, greetings.

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.

Have fun..

GoodLuck

Merry Christmas in advance
