No icon after installing application

I'm getting back into coding after a VERY long time (over 12 years) and am easing myself in with HTML5 development for the Playbook. I managed to put together a very simple little app, mainly as a test of the packaging and  submission procedure...and maybe to get a free Playbook for my wife who covets my 64gb baby!


Anyway, got everthing packed up and signed using Ripple (a great program once I worked out how to use it) and sent it off.


Last night I got a reply that it had been rejected because 'No icon after installing application'.

When I sent the thing off to Blackberry I included two .png files, one of which was to be used as an icon but I think I was also supposed to include this in the packaged file...am I right in thinking I should have added a line of code in the XML file to define this?


I feel like a total **bleep**...like the time I handed in a test paper at Uni without putting my name on it! 

Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow...

Re: No icon after installing application

Welcome to BlackBerry WebWorks development!


Yes, you specify your homescreen icon and name in the WebWorks config.xml file.


Here is a sample config.xml file:



Here is a guide for each of the elements from this file.




Also, for your interest, check out some existing sample applications published on github:
