Re: Newbie trying to develop using Phonegap

A good place to start would be our Getting Started page here: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/what_is_a_webworks_app_1845471_11.html


It'll get you up to speed on what needs to be done/setup on the BlackBerry SDK side of things.  Once you've got that part setup, the Cordova (Phonegap) portion should be much, much easier to begin.

Re: Newbie trying to develop using Phonegap

Hi there,


I have also literally just started looking at Mobile App Development using Phonegap and I managed to run the Hello World program successfully on a Bold 9900 simulator.


Are you running the "ant blackberry build" command before you run the "ant blackberry load-simulator" command?
