BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Smartphone v2.1.1 Update

The latest version 2.1.1 of the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for Smartphones (release notes) is now available for download. Known as the Echo release, this update provides new features that can be used by developers to build even better capabilities into their BlackBerry WebWorks applications.

What’s new in this release?

  • BlackBerry® 7 OS simulator – a BlackBerry® Bold™ 9930 simulator running BlackBerry 7 OS device software is now included in the WebWorks SDK download.
  • Web Inspector – As promised in a previous blog post, developers can now use WebKit Web inspector to debug, test and profile Web browser or BlackBerry WebWorks application content running on a live device or simulator.
  • Microphone API – The same API that was recently made available for the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS can now be used to record WAV audio files in BlackBerry WebWorks applications running on BlackBerry smartphones.
  • Auto injection of Gears-to-HTML5 shim – BlackBerry WebWorks developers that wish to use HTML5 features on BlackBerry 5.0 smartphones no longer need to manually add the Gears-to-HTML JavaScript toolkit to their projects. The BlackBerry WebWorks SDK automatically does this for you.

Microphone API code sample

Use the microphone to record audio and immediately save it as a WAV file to the BlackBerry smartphone file system or a removable SDCard.
