Talking JME, MDS Studio or Visual Studio Plug-in?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm a beginner with blackberry, I read a lot of things about Plug-in for Visual Studio, the MDS Studio and JavaME to develop for blackberry. But I have no idea what I should use to do my work... I would like someone answer me a little question, I read a lot and found that the best should be Java, but as a beginner I can't say it now. So here is my question.

I have an application that I have to save a file, this file can be any kind of file that I have to choose (XML, TXT, BINARY). This file will have some data, like a table in a database, because I want to use blackberry offline, then with USB, Bluetooth or other way, I want to get this file and put the data in a real database. Is JavaME the best way to do it??

I could do it OnLine, I accept but with low data transfer.

I don't want to know how to do it, I only want to know what would be a good choice.

JavaME, MDS Studio or Plug-in Visual Studio???

Thanks a lot...

If you want to programatically access bluetooth or USB drivers to transfer files you will want to go the Java route.

One thing to note is that with the Blackberry desktop manager you can configure the blackberry to use the USB connection as your network connection when plugged in.

If you want to build a simple application that can store data locally and then submit it back to a database on demand or while in coverage the VS plugin or MDS Studio work just fine.

MDS Studio and VS plugin require that you must be using a BlackBerry Enterprise server.. Java does not.

If you are familiar with Visual Studio the plugin is nice, if you are familiar with Eclipse MDS Studio is nice.

If you want some more information on the VS plugin you can check the pre-recorded webcast.. just create a login and you can view it BlackBerry Resource Center - Main

Thanks a lot brcewane!

I don't have BES... Unfortunately I will have to use Java... Today I'm only looking for the best way to make my application, it's simple, but I'm not a "Java Man"...

But I will have to do this application without BES...

Thanks...
