Default (JAVA) add menu items to menu : items are lost if blackberry simulator is restarted

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I have written a JAVA application that adds menu items to the calendar menu.

In the BlackBerry 8120 simulator, when I run this application, my menus items are correctly added in the calendar menu.

But if I stop the simulator (File\Exit) then restart it, the added calendar items have disappeared. I must run again the application (which is still present in the simulator) to add the menu items again.

Do you know what is wrong? How can I do to make these menu items persistent between 2 BlackBerries simulators restarts? Is it a normal simulator behaviour?

Here is my code:

import net.rim.blackberry.api.menuitem.ApplicationMenuItemRepository;
import net.rim.device.api.system.Application;

public final class TheApp extends Application { 
	public static void main(String[] args) 
		new TheApp().enterEventDispatcher();

	public TheApp() 
		ApplicationMenuItemRepository repository = ApplicationMenuItemRepository.getInstance();
		// OpenConfMenuItem and EditConfParamsMenuItem are the classes that inherits ApplicationMenuItem
		OpenConfMenuItem ami1 = new OpenConfMenuItem();
		EditConfParamsMenuItem ami2 = new EditConfParamsMenuItem();
		repository.addMenuItem(ApplicationMenuItemRepository.MENUITEM_CALENDAR,	ami1);
		repository.addMenuItem(ApplicationMenuItemRepository.MENUITEM_CALENDAR,	ami2);

you have to make your application starting during the startup of the device.

right-click on project, Application, check auto-run on startup
