Hello, this is my first time trying to figure out how to develop a working Black Berry application, and I assigned to work on a Weather GPS application where the app grabs the user's GPS coordinates and sends it to a PHP server to process and return weather data. (possibly in the form of an XML)
Now I have a two questions about developing this,
a) Is there a tutorial or documentation that explains blackberry networking commands? TCP, WiFi? etc,, and which one would be recommended to use for my application??
b) Would using a Widget better? or should I switch to a native blackberry application if I want to transfer data to and from a server?
Thanks In advance for the help!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Great thank you, that definition really helped me understand what a widget is,

Accessing your data in a widget is accomplished simply by performing an AJAX call (XMLHttpRequest) to pull in the data.
You can find some widget overview videos here:
And Samples, Labs and Tutorials at the bottom of the page here:
And integrated plug-ins for Visual Studio and Eclipse here:
