deploying web and webworks .bar file to playbook simulator failure

Hi web/ webworks forum


I just walked through the hello world js webworks tutorial. A few thinks to note, I am on linux so I am not really using ripple, its failing like wildfire for me here. Wine doesn't help.


I was able to build my program with the help of a linux port of webworks and generate what seems to be a valid .bar file. Now when launch blackberry-deploy i get this output :


-installApp -password "mypassword" -device -package comp/device/helloworld.bar


Info: Sending request: Install
Info: Action: Install
Info: File size: 412096
Info: Installing ...
Info: Processing 412096 bytes
result::failure 533 Application-Requires-System: version forbidden, want (10, 0, 4, 0) have (2, 1, 0, 1032)


I am not sure what the failure 533 is, it seems to be related to system version but since I built it based on the webworks js it should run on all devices right?


Please help.

Re: deploying web and webworks .bar file to playbook simulator failure



this error happened to me when I tried to install an app compiled with BB10 WebWorks SDK on my PlayBook. To be able to deploy it on a PlayBook, you need to compile it with PlayBook WebWorks SDK. You can get it here, although there doesn't seem to be a Linux version.

Re: deploying web and webworks .bar file to playbook simulator failure



Thanks a lot for your help. Once I knew that was the problem I was able to google my way around and fix it.


A lot of linux users might have similar issues so here is a good resource to get ripple working on chrome.



There is a slight typo under the heading "Run Ripple"

He wrote :  cd ~/ripple/services/node node ./node_modules/rbd/app.js 9910


But it should be :  cd ~/ripple/services/node node ./node_modules/rbd/app.js -start 9910


Happy developing for bb on linux
