I want to load a complete web app on a blackberry app

[ Edited ]

I have a simple http web app buid using PHP/ MySQL.

Now I am looking to build a blckberry app which just load the web app from its url. something like any browser does. but I don't want address bar or file menu. just a simple browser like app which loads my prebuild website.

Will the component support the following:

html forms




1) Is the above possible?
2) if not then which mobile development platform will support it

I am newbie in BlackBerry App Development,

Re: I want to load a complete web app on a blackberry app

Hi Nick,


Which operating system versions are you looking to target your application for?  If you are wishing to deliver your application on v5.0 of the BlackBerry OS, then BlackBerry Widgets would be a great way to do what you are asking



We also have plug-ins for Eclipse and Visual Studio 2008 if these are one of your development environments.


You can also accomplish what you are wanting to do on older operating systems but it is a bit more work, and the BlackBerry Browser rendering/javascript engine isn't as good as on 5.0.
