Introduction

RIM BlackBerry Plugin Module, support build mobility applications with BlackBerry JDE.
V 1.0.2:
Adopt the changes from stevez. Add debug support, build as cldc if no midlet defined
V 1.0.1:
Support BlackBerry JDE 4.5.0.
V 1.0 :
This is built from http://hg.netbeans.org/main/contrib/file/tip/mobility.plugins.blackberry/ with following features added:
1. BlackBerry JDE Component Package support. You can register BlackBerry JDE or BlackBerry JDE Component Package as the platform. You will get full features if you register BlackBerry JDE as platform. But since there are no simulator built in ,so you can just build your application with BlackBerry JDE Component Package, no run and build support for BlackBerry JDE Component Package.
2. non-windows os support. This includes linux, solaris and any os with wine installed. You need Wine to make this work. You can install the JDE or BlackBerry JDE Component Package using wine or install them in a windows pc and copy to your non-windows os. The BlackBerry JDE simulator is not so stable while running in wine, but at least you can build your applications.
3. auto get JDE versions.
4. auto build alx file in your dist folder.

The patch can be find at:

however this plugin still work fine with NetBeans v7.2

So back to NetBeans v7.2 (since v7.3 does not work with it).

this plugin does not work with NetNeans v7.2

After adding BB JDE (v7.1.0.7) as one of JAAV ME platforms, NetBeans says it is not a valid JAVA ME platform.

Here is the quick fix the debug issue

For details please check my article: http://code-dojo.blogspot.com/2011/09/developing-blackberry-application-using.html

I want to update the source code, anyone can tell me how to check out the source code?

great tool, but debug is not working.

I found the application never stop at any break point, after reading the build-impl.xml, I know why. To support debug, you need to copy all the .debug files into the simulator folder. including xxx.debug, xxx-1.debug, xxx-2.debug, etc.
But look at the build-impl.xml, in target"blackberry-pre-debug":

It will copy only xxx.debug file, other debug files will missing, this is why the breakpoint never get stopped.

The fix will be pretty easy, change to:

Non-Midlet Applications

Excellent plugin!! I'm using Netbeans 7.0 and it works right out of the box albeit only for Midlet applications. To utilize the native blackberry API's for a non-midlet application, a simple solution is posted here: http://forums.netbeans.org/topic24475.html.
I hope this gets incorporated into the plugin soon so this can be selected as an option during project generation or from the project properties. Good work!!

Java MIDP Platform Emulator

Select 2 Java MIDP Platform Emulator while add platform

What is the patch for?

It looks like the patch is only for non-Windows, right? If that's not the case, how do I apply it? I'll be running Netbeans in Windows and referencing the Blackberry JDE.

Also, these are the available platform ypes in NB6.5. Which one is the type I want to register Blackberry JDE as?

1 Java Standard Edition
2 Java MIDP Platform Emulator
3 Custom Java ME MIDP Platform Emulator
4 Java ME CDC Platform Emulator

working without wine

Hi atleta
This plugin use wine in two calls. One is to run the preverify from BB JDE. Another is the emulator. The page you suggested said the preverify tools from Sun WTK2.5.2 works for JDE. I will tryit. I will add an option to use a preverify from Sun WTK if it works.

Linux support without wine

Hi,

Linux (and other non-windows OS) support is actually possible to achieve without wine. All the tools are just java ones in the end, they just get called through some exe launchers. The only exception is of course the emulator :( Here is a description how to build on linux or basically any other JSE supported platform: http://www.slashdev.ca/2008/04/03/blackberry-development-using-linux . It could be integrated into your plugin. The author has an ant task for calling the build tools, but of course it could also be done with the java ant task.
