[PlayBook WebWorks] blackberry.invoke email?

Per the WebWorks-for-Playbook API reference, a WebWorks application running on the PlayBook can invoke the local web browser application with a given URL via something like:




blackberry.invoke.invoke(blackberry.invoke.APP_BROWSER, { url: browserUrl });




Is there (or will there be) a similar WebWorks-for-Playbook API to invoke the local email client, similar to what an HTML <a href="mailto:email-address"> element would do?  (E.g., a blackberry.invoke.APP_EMAIL?)

Re: [PlayBook WebWorks] blackberry.invoke email?


I need to send an attachment via e-mail client programatically in playbook webworks


I had implemented it in BlackBerry Curve using Java Extension.


But Jave Extension is not getting recognized in PlayBook

Also I went through this post, But there is no solution to add mail attachment


Also is it possible to use AIR extension for the mail attachment in PlayBook webworks


If there is any other way to invoke mail client in Playbook weborks please share
