Possible Offline Storage in PlayBook?

I'm currenty aiming to build a offline webworks application for PlayBook that leverage the offline / internal storage for the PlayBook. AFAIK, this filesytem API is not yet supported (according to the PlayBook API reference, CMIIW).

I've tried to use the IndexedDB to use the PB simulator browser internal storage, but there's no luck.


The question is, what is the best offline storage media to use in PlayBook to deliver the offline WebWork application to user?

How about HTML5 openDatabase ? 

I quickly tried the "StickyNotes" webkit sample app and it seems to work - except that the example expects mouse input etc .. but the sticky notes opened get restored when app gets opened again.


(Even after restarting playbook sim all still there as saved.)

IndexDB is not yet enabled... you will need to use the HTML5 SQLite Database API
