SPT-1971iOSAfter securing app, navigation bar items and toolbars are not showing up.

Fixed an issue where some app resources were not being downloaded correctly and thus screens and menus would not appear. This was occurring with the Secure Web Stack policy enabled but the DAR policy disabled.

SPT-1974AndroidApp fails to submit data in API call when secured with 3.22.2Fixed a bug where some URLConnection APIs were not implicitly performing a connect() if one had not been performed yet. We also fixed another case where the form action URL was different from the actual URL only by case.
BCP-2670AndroidUpgrade Android development environment to use NDK 19

Updated our Android development tools and runtime environment to use Android NDK 19. This upgrade aligns better with current/recent Android devices, Chrome, and customer apps, and resolves many latent Android instability issues with Blue Cedar integration.

BlackBerry Dynamics upgrade

As of Mobile Client 4.2.0, we have upgraded the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK for iOS to 5.0 (5.0.1.30), and the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK for Android to 5.0 (5.0.0.47). See the BlackBerry release notes for more information:

Deprecation notice

Support for the ARM EABI will be removed in a future release.

Open issues/limitations

  • Browser support: The integration platform interface supports Chrome and Firefox browsers. (Safari, Edge, and Internet Explorer are not currently supported.)

Limitations with integrating the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK:

  • ClipboardManager/drag and drop:  The ClipboardManager Dynamics API is not integrated into apps since there is no 1:1 mapping to Android's ClipboardManager. Apps usually do not call the ClipboardManager directly to perform drag and drop operations. (BCP-1638, Android)
  • BlackBerry Secure Network/Transport: Turning on/off Secure Network/Transport from the integration platform does not affect the integration. (BCP-704)
  • iPhone ARMv7 devices: BlackBerry Dynamics does not integrate into apps on ARM v7 Apple devices (32-bit CPUs) such as iPhone 5 or 5c. (BCP-1523, iOS)
  • Secure file transfer: There is currently no support for functionality to enable or disable file sharing between apps integrated with BlackBerry and apps not integrated with BlackBerry. (BCP-2001)
  • Xamarin certificates: Xamarin HTTP traffic is not sent to the BlackBerry HTTP client. (BCP-2719)
