That's the database API. Weather it's labelled "html5" and/or W3C's position is not relevant. WebWorks apps run in a BlackBerry browser, which should support it. Most webkit browers will support it as well. There's html elements deprecated decades ago that still work fine in most browsers.

you can use webdb with no problems, although it is deprectated like you said.

During the BB10Jam I heard from one of the speakers that IndexDB will be supported by WebWorks, but it's still a work in progress. Actually, I think it's a work in progress in W3C too Smiley Happy
