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.


Rumman's Gravatar Looking cool. Keep it up my friend.

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.

Diego Mei's Gravatar I could watch it with ease on my PlayBook. ^^

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.
