Invoke another Internal App using WebWorks App

Hi,

 

Is there any way I can invoke an installed app (not playbook specific) from my webworks app? Something similar to default invoke functionality. Any clues on how to invoke an app in similar way? Will any APIs for the same be available in near future?

 

Thanks in advance

Praveen

Re: Invoke another Internal App using WebWorks App

You can invoke another 3rd party application on the BlackBerry smartphone by using the JavaArguments.  On the PlayBook, you can only invoke the apps listed in the Invoke API.

I'm not sure when they will be bringing this functionality to the PlayBook.

Thanks for the information. May i know if there is any option to write an extension for WebWorks which could enable this feature?

If you are referring to PlayBook.. then no there isn't an option. We expose all of the possible system options for invoking another application on the device in WebWorks
