HTML5 Apache Cordova

Hi Everybody,


During the last  days I have been trying to pack my app using Ripple. However, I have been having a liitle problems:


1. I have an app developed on HTML5 and Apache Cordova, when I use ripple emulator and I select "platform option" I choose the "apache cordova item" and emulator works!. However, selecting this option I can´t use the

package options.


2. Then, I try to use the use " webworks platform "  option in order to use package options, but console show me

"invalid application archive" - failed to find config.xml.


Can anyone tell me  how can I configure my app for blackberry?, I mean ,how can I define the config.xml file and

the project structure?. Normally In android you have:





How  can I  packing my html5 apache cordova app?


Sorry but I`m new to blackberry.



Thank you very much!

Re: HTML5 Apache Cordova

Ripple does not support packaging Apache Cordova applications. If you are building for that platform, you should look at https://build.phonegap.com/ for instructions on how to build for the various platforms.


If you only want to build for the WebWorks platform (and not Apache Cordova), then as mentioned above, you should consult the WebWorks documentation.
