Creating an Application with the BlackBerry JDE The BlackBerry JDE is a fully integrated development environment that contains all the tools you need to develop, build, and test your application, on both a simulator and a device. Its editor, while quite usable, is not quite state-of-the-art, and if you’re used to something like Visual Studio or Eclipse, you may find it a step backward. However, it makes up for this by supporting the widest range of features for BlackBerry development; there are times when only the JDE will do.

With the JDE Plug-in for Eclipse, the Javadocs are located on the filesystem under the Eclipse installation directory. html. You can also see the Javadoc for any class or method in the Eclipse editor by hovering the mouse pointer over the class or method name for a few seconds as in Figure 3-2. Figure 3-2.

The JDE will automatically build your project (hopefully, you don’t have any build errors) and deploy it to the simulator, and the default simulator for your version of the JDE will start. 1, which has the BlackBerry 8800 as its default simulator, so we get a window that looks like this the one shown in Figure 2-8.
