Back in December, BlackBerry unveiled their new BlackBerry Development Platform, an enterprise grade toolset which enables developers to build secure, powerful and customized mobility solutions for almost every use case.

The BlackBerry Development Platform includes BlackBerry Dynamics, consisting of the BlackBerry Dynamics (BD) SDK services that provide a powerful set of tools to ISV and enterprise developers. The company has now announced  the release of BlackBerry Dynamics Plugins for Cordova.

The BlackBerry Dynamics Platform provides a range of SDKs and plug-ins, allowing developers to work in familiar environments to build native, hybrid and web apps. Once apps are built, developers can assume the role of IT admin to quickly validate the management and distribution of their apps through the BlackBerry Dynamics Platform.

BlackBerry supports cross-platform development frameworks via dedicated BlackBerry Dynamics SDKs for Cordova/PhoneGap, HTML5 web apps and Xamarin.
