A Secure BlackBerry Dynamics Android WebView is Here

CODE SAMPLES / 10.12.18 / Mark Sohm

When it comes to displaying internally hosted web content in a BlackBerry Dynamics application, iOS applications have had an advantage over Android.  On iOS, developers have been able to create a web view that makes use of BlackBerry Dynamics’ secure connectivity to display web content that is hosted behind the firewall on the company intranet.  This hasn’t been possible on Android, where the web view was limited to displaying content on the public internet… that is until now.

We have released a new AndroidWebView sample, which extends the GDWebView to enable BlackBerry Dynamics secure connectivity.  Head over to Github to look at the sample and read about the components used to make this happen.

Access the AndroidWebView sample on Github.
