Client-side listener application

Client-side applications listen for incoming data. You can create a client-side application for BlackBerry 10 using any of the following platforms.

BlackBerry Native SDK

The BlackBerry Native SDK includes the Cascades framework. The Cascades framework contains tools and APIs that you can use to build rich applications using Cascades libraries and Qt libraries.

You can use the Cascades framework to develop a client-side application that listens for push data. For more information, visit the BlackBerry Native SDK documentation website.

BlackBerry WebWorks

BlackBerry WebWorks applications are standalone BlackBerry device applications that are built on standard web technologies, including HTML, XHTML, style sheets, JavaScript, SVG, image files, and other resources. Once they have been packaged for use on a device, widgets follow the same security rules, configuration, and deployment model as any BlackBerry Java Application.

You can use BlackBerry WebWorks to develop a client-side application that listens for push data. For more information, visit the BlackBerry WebWorks documentation website.

BlackBerry SDK for Adobe AIR

The BlackBerry SDK for Adobe AIR is designed for Adobe Flash and AIR developers to build (or port) popular applications to BlackBerry 10. You can also use the SDK with Adobe ActionScript and Adobe Flex APIs to create an engaging user experience. These APIs provide some unique UI components and predefined skins, as well as listeners for events that are specific to BlackBerry devices.
