The BlackBerry WebWorks SDK contains three sets of APIs that you can work with:
The APIs are listed by category below and alphabetically at left.
A few APIs, such as connections and contacts, exist in more than one API library. For cross-platform compatibility, use the Apache Cordova or HTML5 version. If you are developing for BlackBerry only, using the BlackBerry APIs may allow you to access additional features or to incur less overhead.
APIs that integrate platform applications and functionality into your own app, such as email, calendar, and BBM. You can also use these APIs to invoke actions from other apps.
Use the APIs in this category to access data from data sources such as XML, JSON, or SQL. You can also store data in data models (to display to users in a list), manage large amounts of data, and create a file picker that lets users select and save individual or multiple files.
Device and Communication
Manage device features and use communication APIs, ranging from NFC and GPS to Wi-Fi and gyroscope.
An API that helps you use the Identity Service library provided by a specific Identity Provider.
Use maps and location services in your apps, and provide support for mapping features, such as landmarks.
Support different platform features in your apps, such as Payment Service, notifications, languages, and home screen functions.
