I'm completely new on Blackberry Webworks development. I'm trying to do an application for Playbook but I don't know where to start.
I have some question:

I've asked about forms because when I add a button (input type="button") using Microsoft Expression Web 4, it also adds a form.
I think a form isn't necessary.
And can I use jQuery-mobile?
Thanks for your answer.

If it works in Chrome / Webkit it'll work on Playbook - in some cases better
Playbook has a VERY advanced browser - it scores better than FireFox on HTML5test
There WAS an issue with JQuery 1.51 but that seems to have been fixed
There are a few naming problems you will encounter
Rename jquery.1.5.x.min.js to something like query.js - the same goes for mobile
More than one dot (.) in a filename will cause 'issues' as will underscores and hypens (minus signs)
Other than that everything is dead easy unless you use some of the advanced features in the current API
The only thing you'll have a problem with after you write your app is signing it - this is dead easy if you know what you need to do...
Make sure the file you create for your p12 is called sigtool.p12 then copy/move it to your <install>/bwpp/bin directory or signing will fail
BB PB is not the most friendly dev environment to use as the problems you will encounter are hard to find the solution to but as long as you know what to do everything is very easy
