Setting up your tools
The BlackBerry WebWorks SDK provides a set of tools that you can use to create applications using web technologies.
Before downloading and using the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK, make sure that your system meets the following requirements:
|Runtime environment||Java Runtime Environment 1.6 (32-bit)|
|Processor||Intel Pentium or AMD Athlon desktop processor 2 GHz or faster|
|Virtual environment||BlackBerry 10 Device Simulator requires VMware Player on Windows or VMware Fusion on Mac OS X|
|Storage space||1 GB or more available hard disk space|
|Memory||2 GB RAM or more|
|Monitor||Resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher|
|OS||Windows XP SP3 32-bit, Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, or Mac OS X 10.6.4 or Latest Version.|
Set up the tools
To set up the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK, follow the steps below:
- Download and install the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for BlackBerry 10.
- Download and install the BlackBerry 10 simulator. If you have a BlackBerry device available for testing, downloading a simulator isn't essential, but you will probably find it convenient to have one.
Set up your computer for testing
and signing by creating your BlackBerry ID token and then creating your Developer Certificate.
This is a one-time process that will allow you to test your app on a device and,
when you're ready, to sign your app so it can be submitted to BlackBerry World.
The BlackBerry ID token is used to create the debug token that allows you to load and test an unsigned app on a BlackBerry 10 device. If you have not created a BlackBerry ID token and stored it in the required location, you will not be able to test your app on a device.
