Google gears in Blackberry Widgets

I noticed that some examples uses google gears api, such as the sql lite example.


If I want to make an offline app, will it be possible to copy-paste the google gears api code, and make it usable offline?

Re: Google gears in Blackberry Widgets



Just to provide some direction on where Gears is going within the WebWorks Platform (formerly BlackBerry Widget Platform).  We support Gears on all devices that have the 5.0 Handheld OS, but started with the BB6 Handheld OS we deprecated support of Gears in favor of HTML5.  So there is a knowledge base article and seperate JS library zip file that helps a developer to (if they are targetting both 5.0 and BB6 devices) use one code base using HTML5.


Here's a link to the knowledge base article and the JS library file:
