HelloWorld Sample Application

This is a Hello World-like sample application for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet that uses HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. This application displays an image and a button. When users click the button, their GPS coordinates are returned and displayed on the screen along with some location-related information.

This application was created for the Creating your First application tutorial.

How to Build

To build the HelloWorld sample application, complete the following steps:

  1. Click on the Downloads tab above.
  2. Select Download as zip (Windows) or Download as tar.gz (Mac) and save the downloaded file to your local machine.
  3. Create a new folder on your local machine named helloworld (for example, C:\Documents and Settings\User\WebWorks\HelloWorld (Windows) or ~/WebWorks/HelloWorld (Mac).
  4. Open the downloaded ZIP file from step 2 and extract the contents from inside the zipped HelloWorld folder to your local HelloWorld folder from step 3. This ensures that the necessary application assets, such as config.xml, are correctly located at the top level of the local HelloWorld folder (e.g. ~/WebWorks/HelloWorld/config.xml).
  5. Using the Ripple Mobile Emulator and either the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Smartphone or the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS, package the contents of your local HelloWorld folder into a BlackBerry application. Enter the project root settings field as the local folder created in step 3, and the archive name settings field as HelloWorld.
