that's exactly the reason i did the quick hack of bunit - to support UiApplications instead of MIDLets

I create unit tests as a stand-alone application (midlet, using j2meunit) which exercises the business logic contained in already-installed modules.

For example, an application that I wish to test is installed on the device as "com_foo_app". I write unit tests in my usual editor (making sure I add the "com_foo_app" project as a dependency of the unit test app) then compile the unit test app to a cod, install it on the device, and run it. Note that I've also installed j2meunit as a module on the device as well (preverify and compile as a library).

BlackBerry doesn't have great lcdui support for whatever reason, but j2meunit is apparently simple enough that it works alright. I'm not really testing a UiApplication vs a MIDlet per se, rather, testing the underlying logic and using a MIDlet to display the results.

Is it possible to include and run a secondary main() entry point in a BlackBerry Eclipse JDE project? I'm interested in running a second application, simply as a standalone Java application, and using it to execute some text-mode unit tests (not interested in the GUI since it takes a while to load). Right now, I get a "class not found" exception.

Update: I got this to work by adding a JAR reference to the project jar. But it looks like I cannot load classes from the RIM libraries:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassFormatError: Method <init> in class net/rim/device/api/ui/container/MainScreen has illegal modifiers: 0x101

Any suggestions (which might include "don't do that")?

thanks,
Jeff
