OAuth for WebWorks and for Qt

The IETF describes the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework in RFC 6749 as follows:

(The framework) … enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service, either on behalf of a resource owner by orchestrating an approval interaction between the resource owner and the HTTP service, or by allowing the third-party application to obtain access on its own behalf….

We have several samples and libraries to use OAuth in our platform.

Chad Tetreault ( ) recently published some WebWorks-based samples that use Rob Griffiths’ jsOAuth.  Read about the samples at Chad’s post at DevBlog, or go visit them at our BB10-WebWorks-Samples repo at GitHub: Twitter with OAuth 1, Foursquare with OAuth 2, or FaceBook with OAuth 2.

We also now have a Qt-based OAuth library in the bb-cascades-oauth repository.  The library is a BlackBerry-specific fork, by Kyle Fowler ( ), of kQOauth, by Johan Paul.
