BlackBerry devices and applications are selling by the millions. As a BlackBerry developer, you need an advanced skill set to successfully exploit the most compelling features of the platform. This book will help you develop those skills and teach you how to create the most sophisticated BlackBerry programs possible.

With Advanced BlackBerry Development, you'll learn you how to take advantage of BlackBerry media capabilities, including the camera and video playback. The book also shows you how to send and receive text and multimedia messages, use powerful cryptography libraries, and connect with the user's personal and business contacts and calendar.

Along the way, you'll also be building a program that takes full advantage of these APIs: a wireless media-sharing app. Each chapter's lessons will be applied by enhancing the app from a prototype to a fully polished program. Start differentiating your product by fully integrating with the operating system. Run in the browser and within device menus, just like software that comes with the phone.

Once you are comfortable with writing apps, this book will show you how to take them to the next level. You'll learn how to move from running on one phone to running on all phones, and from one country to all countries. No other resource compares for mastering the techniques needed for expert development on this mobile platform.

What you'll learn

  • Write sophisticated BlackBerry applications
  • Integrate with the device so your program behaves like a native app
  • Leverage advanced JSRs for cryptography, media capture, messaging, and more
  • Tie into the device contact list, calendar, and tasks
  • Understand the RIM security model and complex security processes
  • Quickly and easily port to many device types in multiple countries

Who is this book for?

Readers may approach this book after completing Beginning BlackBerry Development, but intermediate-level programmers may start directly with this book. Readers should have some previous experience with programming for mobile phones, but they need not be experts. Both hobbyists and professional developers will benefit from this book; they may be motivated by curiosity, desire to solve a particular problem, or look to enhance their skill sets and careers.
