In this tutorial, a general development information for the BlackBerry 10 environment will be presented.
A BlackBerry application that is developed with IBM MobileFirst Platform is composed of the following components:
- All the application components, including the web code that the developer provides, packaged into a single BlackBerry project
IBM MobileFirst Platform supports BlackBerry devices that run BlackBerry OS version 6, 7.x and 10.x.

The Apache Cordova framework can be used to access the native elements of the device, such as contacts, geo-location services, media services, and accelerometer.
For more information about Apache Cordova development, see the Apache Cordova overview tutorial.
