Re: More about widgets application

Can you clarify your questions please?


1) If you mean how to provide a "back" feature in a WebWorks app on the PlayBook, we recommend adding navigation to your application itself.  Unlike the Smartphone where there is a physical "back" button, PlayBooks is a full touch screen device so any sort of back/forward navigation will need to be included as part of your application.


2) If you are asking whether you can re-use custom Java-based JavaScript extensions on PlayBook, the answer is no.  This is currently not possible as the BlackBerry Tablet OS does not yet have a JVM.  A JVM will be include at a future point in time.


Hope that helps,
