Question Is there any interface available in bb api which I can use instead of extending UiApp

Please Login to Remove!

The aim is to enter the app without using enterEventDispatcher. My app inherits class manager, so I can't really inherit UiApplication class. That's why my app isn't getting started. Any solution??

You cannot have a CDLC app UI app without extending UiApplication.

If you do not have a UI, you can extend application.

What is the objection to UiApplication?

a manager is a container that need to be added to a screen.
You need an entry point for your application that contain the main method. That entry point need to extends UiApplication. Then you'll be able to push a screen with your manager.

You can try something like this :
public class MainApplication extends UiApplication {
	public MainApplication() {
		MainScreen screen = new MainScreen();
		screen.add(new <YourManager>());

	public static void main(final String[] args) {
		MainApplication theApp = new MainApplication();

Thank you, have a nice day.
