Is it possible to invoke the BBM app by using "blackberry.invoke" object?

My application requires to send message to BBM Contacts directly without invite them before. After I review "Blackberry WebWorks" SDK document, I found that we cannot do this. 

 

These are my questions. 

1. Do you know if this is specific limitation to WebWorks or would a "Native App" have the same limitation?

 

2. If it is limitation for "WebWorks" and "Native App" can do this. Is it possible to invoke the BBM app by using "blackberry.invoke" object? If so, I am not sure how to pass all arguments to invoke the BBM app. Could you please suggest me?

This really isn't a WebWorks limitation.. the BBM API for WebWorks is the same as it is for Java.

 

You can invoke BBM using the invoke API but I don't believe it will accept parameters
