If I want to use the jquery mobile and phonegap features inside Dreamweaver, how can I get sure that always the most actual builds of them are used?
Dreamweaver has a version of the SDK for Android built in with the installer. I believe it runs 2.2. As fragmented as Android is at the moment you can download whatever versions you need from the Android SDK.
Personally I did that to install the initial version because the package was not working when 5.5 was released, hence the early patch.
As far as iOS is concerned, as long as you are running XCode you have the latest version of iOS. Currently the Mac App Store only checks for updates when it launches so launch it every so often. I believe with Lion they are supposed to be fixing this to allow for incremental upgrades.
For the JQuery Mobile, I will be honest that I have not spent enough time using it in DW yet to say how difficult it is to keep it up to date.
Thank you for your answer,
I managed to use the newest, or whatever I want SDK for Android, and its emulators.
I've also already find the solution for jquerymobile and jquery itself. It's build in Dreamweaver and you can link direct to the CDN page of jquery library. Its quite an elegant solution. You find it in File > New > Page from sample > Mobile Starters.
BUT more important, how can I always use the newest version of phonegap?
There is a manual way to update PhoneGap. Here is one blog that describes it. I have not tested it and am not sure if it works with the latest version of PhoneGap (1.3 as of this post).
Adobe does need to get on the ball here. I believe Dreamweaver 5.5 comes with PhoneGap 0.9 and it has changed so much since then. Version1.3 now includes Windows Phone support! Adobe needs to integrate a simple method for us to stay up to date.
