Unhappy Question to the Group

Please Login to Remove!

Just browsing around and wondering if any knows of any books on How To Program BlackBerry or if anyone is writing one. I saw the ones that come with the JDE download, but it isn't as civilian friendly as I'd like . I know there are a few J2ME books out there, but no BlackBerry ones :(

"Trial and Error"

LOL! Just about. I've been scratching my head trying to just figure out some of the most basic of things.

This week I'm going to do a smack of study and see what I can figure out. It's great to be unemployed.

with many things not running on the simulator and debugging being just pain the thing i most used to find bugs was dialog.alert("wooo, error!")
in the complicate code parts there were almost as many alerts as normal code for some time. displaying all important variables gives you kind of breakpoint-support for the device

WROX are bringing one out over the summer (in addition to their existing Professional Blakberry title which is not a developers book) ...

For the most part, the J2ME books give you what you need. Those in conjunction with the API PDF docs from RIM, and you should be good to go ... UNLESS you are new to programming (PHP, and VB does not count).

WROX? Wow, they're still around. I heard rumors many years ago that the series went out of biz. Again they were rumors. Well good to hear they're coming out with a J2ME book.

I can't wait to get something on screen that looks decent. I'm going to start a thread about that.

The WROX titles have been revamped under Wiley as a publisher. They have a lot of new books coming out.

I've started a thread about what people have developed on their Blackberries.

Check it out.

Are you just starting to program in BB or are you like an old dog at it?
