Sample code for sqlite for blackberry widgets



I am having trouble getting the sqlite to work on my blackberry widget.

I found a demo online, and I tried to copy it, but it didn't work as well.

I found little resources online, and I am stumped how to begin.

I put bits and pieces of information together, but somehow I can't get things to work properly.


Fist of all:


<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/html5_init.js" id="html5_init"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/html5_worker.js"></script>

what is the purpose of this? to make html5/gears work in version 5.0?



Second of all, I found this in the sample code


    <script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi?key=ABQIAAAA1o74CLmvcPnl2Fbx4sOymBQfEs8_TczC0WHTxzaWv64C1qm3GBTO0qQp2PNQ..." type="text/javascript"></script>  
    <script src="Scripts/action.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="Scripts/gears_init.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


I see that it's implementing google js api, action.js, gears_init.js.. Do I need all 3 of those to make it work? If yes, it wouldn't work offline?


Lastly, I can't find a working sample code for sqlite, and all the articles on the net are jumbled up saying stuff like "google gears depreciated"


I feel slightly stumped developing blackberry apps, the learning curve, cross-device compatibility issues, and lack of documentation on line... =(

Re: Sample code for sqlite for blackberry widgets

Hi tpae,


Here's a recent topic on the forum asking the same question as you raise:




Also, there is a full WebWorks weather sample application that uses the HTML5 Database functionality included as an attachment to a knowledge base article that should help you.  NOTE: If you're not using Eclipse or Visual Studio you can obviously skip the instructions in the knowledge based article on that.  Here's the link to the article and source code:
