I'm creating a Blackberry Webworks application using Webworks Plug-in for eclipse.
I have a SWF which I want to use in html.
After building from eclipse my SWF comes in .zip file.
I'm creating .bar file using command prompt.
But my SWF doesn't comes in generated Test.bar
When I deploy this .bar file to Playbook simulator.
It shows other text but not SWF.

Hi there, we have logged a defect regarding the playing of embedded SWF files packaged inside the BAR. I will be sure to let you know when this is resolved. Currently, there is an issue playing *.swf files using the local:/// context.

It's been a while any report of fix? What is the approapriate mechanism for embedding, I've seen other posts reporting many methods and the only one reported to work was using jQuery which I don't
want to depend on.

Actually, the simulator that has been updated few days ago, seems to have better support (i could play a flv video). I havent yet tried with a compiled webworks app....would be doing so in a few days...will keep you posted...incase you do...please let us know

Is this going to be fixed by launch? .swf files still get stripped out but you can fool it by saying they
are .jpg files and then hope at runtime the binary is still valid which they should be.
However using plain webkit pages to play them in 0.9.4 simulator I don't see anything.

FYI I can embed my .swf files by calling them .jpg and while I still can't
get them to show up the simulator .9.4 the sounds in the swf play so I think the simulator display
is the issue. Neither does the web browser in the simulator play webpages with swf for me (again only sound)
but it could be with different OS it can (I have 32bit WinXP VM 3.1.4)?
I may try turning off the hardware acceleration in the VM and if I have success will post...

There are no codecs distributed with the 0.9.4 simulator so media such as video and audio will either not play or be very limited. This will be corrected with the final official v1.0 release.
The ability to package .swf files in your WebWorks app will also be supported in the RTM release of the SDK.

Is this working now? I'm about to attempt porting the animator of my app Screamager to Flash to see if I can get better performance like that. I think it could be a lot faster that way so my animations run at a more decent speed.
Can someone confirm at this point that it's possible to have an embedded SWF inside a regular WebWorks (so not AIR) application?
