  • RIM Launches New Developer Tools and Services for BlackBerry Tablet OS and BlackBerry


    “RIM continues to invest in a global and diverse developer community and we are offering them a broad range of tools in support of the BlackBerry Application Platform,” said David Yach, CTO for Software at Research In Motion. “With BlackBerry WebWorks, developers will be able to use standard web technologies to build powerful, integrated applications quickly and easily for both BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, and the GitHub open source project around BlackBerry WebWorks means more support for developers, enabling them to fully participate in defining the future of this platform and tooling. We are also excited to launch the new Payment service for BlackBerry smartphones, along with enhancements to the Push Service and an update of the Java Plug-in for Eclipse.”
    With features that include access to core functionality in the BlackBerry PlayBook, as well as extensibility and robust security, the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS provides many benefits to developers including:

    • RIM's powerful WebKit web rendering engine (which is at the core of WebWorks) supporting the latest web technology standards including HTML5, CSS and JavaScript
    • Deep access to device capabilities and components such as native dialogs, application invocation and system information
    • A simple command-line tool that allows developers to use their favorite web development environment to develop WebWorks applications
    • The capability to automatically transform a W3C widget archive file containing web assets into a BlackBerry WebWorks application package
