What's a WebWorks application?
A BlackBerry WebWorks application is simply a standalone web application that you can deploy to a BlackBerry smartphone or tablet.
What's the big deal?
First, a BlackBerry WebWorks application is a standalone application, which means you don't need to point to a remote server to load a web page or application (unless you want to). In this case, the application lives on the BlackBerry device. The application is essentially a bundle of web assets that are packaged into a container that can be viewed by a headless browser -- the WebKit engine container.
