Getting your BlackBerry PlayBook development environment set up - Part Three

In this post, we're going to look at setting up FlashBuilder 4 to talk to our BlackBerry PlayBook virtual device. We'll also create our first PlayBook App.

Note, Parts one & two of this series are prerequisites to this part.

Something New

My last two posts were SO LONG, and took a while to load. All of the screen captures and images really annoyed me. So I decided to do this post using Adobe Captivate.

Captivate is a really fantastic product that does not get a lot of attention (at least that I've seen). I really had a good experience creating this demo. Please let me know what you think.

Caleb's Gravatar The Captivate Demo is cool, but it the lack of iPad support is unfortunate. I was viewing your blog on my ipad, and setting up my macbook... until I got to step 3.

Either way, I just thought you may appreciate the feedback.

Regardless, thanks for the great work!

Jason Dean's Gravatar Thanks Caleb. You're right, the lack of Flash support on the iPad is unfortunate. :)

See what I did there? Awesome ;)

stephen's Gravatar In case it saves someone else the trouble:
My simulator was complaining that the tablet OS SDK wasn't installed and configured.
Turns out I needed to get into project properties->flex compiler and select Blackberry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR
It defaulted to something else.

Will there be more articles?

Jason Dean's Gravatar Diego,

I am afraid not. My mobile focus is now on PhoneGap. But the ADC has covered Blackberry and other Flash for Mobile development better than I ever could. http://www.adobe.com/devnet/devices.html
