Can I develop applications in Webworks for BB 8820 v. (Platform


I have developped an application, successfuly compiled by Webworks and got .cod and .jax files.

I have successfully uploaded the into BB Desktop.

When tried to install - is started well, numbers were incerasing, then stopped and DID NOT installed. No error, no warrning neither on phone nor on BB Desktop. I still stays in BB Desktop as not installed, I can select for installation and the action repeats with same result.

I can install other downloaded applications by BB Desktop - it works.


I have not found specification of Webworks: supported OS.


Any advice is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Webworks for BB 8820?

The oldest OS that WebWorks supports is BlackBerry 5.0.  The reason why is because WebWorks uses a WebView (named 'BrowserField') that was introduced in that version of the OS.
