Chad Tetreault created CB-1823:
----------------------------------

             Summary: BlackBerry updates to the docs
                 Key: CB-1823
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1823
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Docs
    Affects Versions: 2.3.0
            Reporter: Chad Tetreault
            Assignee: Michael Brooks


** Is there a better way to split up BBOS, PlayBook, and BlackBerry 10 (QNX) into seperate
sections so that developers can easily see the information specific to the platform they're
targetting?  

** Could add add some screenshots for BlackBerry 10? Similar to how the iOS guide looks. 
I can provide them if needed.

----

Section: "Getting Started with BlackBerry"

Replace: WebWorks applications can ONLY be deployed to BlackBerry devices running OS 5.0 and
higher or the BlackBerry PlayBook operating system.

With: WebWorks applications can ONLY be deployed to the following BlackBerry platforms:
  * BlackBerry OS 5.0 and higher
  * BlackBerry PlayBook
  * BlackBerry 10 (QNX)

----

2. "Install SDK + Cordova"

Replace: - Download and install one or more of the WebWorks SDKs. Keep note of the install
directory.
  * Smartphone Development: BlackBerry WebWorks Smartphone SDK
  * PlayBook Development: BlackBerry WebWorks Tablet OS SDK

With: Download and install the appropriate WebWorks SDKs for your development. BlackBerry
10, BlackBerry PlayBook, and BlackBerry Smartphone WebWorks SDKs can be downloaded from the
following location: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/download/

*Make note of the installation directory.

----

3. "Setup New Project"

Replace: Open up the project.properties file with your favorite editor and edit the entries
for blackberry.bbwp.dir= and/or playbook.bbwp.dir=. Set the value(s) to the directory containing
the bbwp binary in the WebWorks SDK(s) installed earlier.

With: Open up the project.properties file with your favorite editor and edit the entries for
the WebWorks SDKs you are using:
  * blackberry.bbwp.dir=
  * playbook.bbwp.dir=
  * qnx.bbwp.dir=

  Set the value(s) to the root directories of the corresponding WebWorks SDK(s) you have installed.
Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK 1.0.2.9

----

4. "Hello World"

Replace: Replace target with either blackberry or playbook.

Issue: Replace target with blackberry, playbook, or qnx to build for the corresponding platform.

**This appears to be not true. The sample application just displays a landing page with no
additional functionality. (Get Screenshot) Should have a fully functional app.  I've been
creating a Kitchen Sink app for BB10 which tests all the API's, perhaps we could include this,
or link to it when it's complete?

----

5A "Deploy to Simulator"

Replace: PlayBook simulators require VMWare Player

With: PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 simulators require VMWare Player

**The qnx.sim.ip and qnx.sim.password values aren't mentioned.
**While in your project directory...
**There is no mention of qnx anywhere.

Replace: The application will be installed in the All Applications section in the simulator.

With: The application will be installed to the homescreen of the simulator.

----

5B "Deploy to Device (Windows and Mac)"

**There is no 'Setup BlackBerry 10 Signing keys' link.
**https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/signing_setup_bb10_apps_2008396_11.html

**Open the project.properties...
**There is no reference to any of the qnx variables.

Add: Before deploying to a BlackBerry PlayBook or BlackBerry 10 device, ensure that Development
Mode is enabled in your device Security settings.

**While in your project directory...
**qnx should be added as an option in addition to blackbery and playbook.

Replace: The application will be installed in the All Applications section in the device.

With: The application will be installed to the homescreen of the device.

----

"Additional Info"

Add: BlackBerry WebWorks Documentation https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/
