    Is it possible to build PlayBook apps (and BB10 for that matter) on Eclipse? This would be much simpler for me as it's where I do my Android developing as well.

    Also, the app I'm designing is to be an app equivelant to my organization's website, right now everything in it is stored offline, and so I would have to update it anytime there is much more information. Obviously it would be ideal to have instead an app that would retrieve all this data online, I assume the way to accomplish this would be an HTML app? If so, could someone point me toward some good beginners info in this area?

    Hi zethaaron,

    Absolutely you can use Eclipse to develop apps for PB and BB10 using the WebWorks (HTML5/JS) framework.

    The best place to start:
    https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/
    If you have more detailed questions, RIM maintains a good forum here:
    Web and WebWorks Development - BlackBerry Support Community Forums

    Cheers,

    In fact, both Flash Builder (for AIR apps) and Momentics (for C/C++) are Eclipse environments, so you'll feel right at home. FB can even be added to an extisting Eclipse install.

    For BB10, Ripple comes as a Chrome extension. Pretty smart to use as it allows to test multiple devices visually. It also enables on the fly build (package/sign).

    For Eclipse, since I'm webworks, I wonder if we could get some kind of dictionary to extend (Aptana) markup validation/suggestions, for CSS, JS and HTML files ... would be great !
