build Qt on on one platform, target QNX and use the stage/ folder in another Qt creator

 

Hi all,
I’ve just registered here now.

I am a pro dev coming from Java on blackberry.
I have no experience at all on QT Qt and academic knowledge of C++

I would like to deploy a working QT Qt creator “bundle” on windows for our team
Target device for apps is blackerry playbooks
The problem is that instructions and tutos for seamlessly building and deploying apps on playbook from Qt creator are linux based.

I would like to know if I can build a stage/ folder targeting ARM cpu on one computer running ubuntu;
then copy the ARM stage/ folder on another computer running QT Qt creator on windows
and from there, write and deploy mobile apps to a playbook tablet;

Thanks in advance,
raxy

Edit: The toolkit is called Qt, not QT. QT refers to QuickTime; Andre

Sorry, blackberry is pretty new in the Qt world, I doubt many people have worked with it already.

It should be possible to build on a different computer, considering that you can put use custom build steps running just about anything in Qt Creator. We do not support that out of the box in any way and never tested for this use case though, so you are mostly on your own. No idea how hard that is going to be, considering that not-existing knowledge of the steps required to build for RIM.

God bless your kindness Tobias,
thanks for the answer.
I should then stick to ubuntu for everything as doing playbook qt dev on windows is very painful.
cheers.

You should be able to run creator on a ubuntu machine and have it display on a windows box by installing an X server on windows. Never tried that, and of course you will need to connect your playbook to the ubuntu machine for deployment. Not sure whether that could help with your setup.
