Question Load new cod version without closing Emulator

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, is there a way to load a new version of a cod without closing the Emulator? It takes way too much time to close it and re-open it.

I know what you want to do, when I started developing for BlackBerry I was looking for a way to accomplish the same thing.

Unfortunately once the simulator is started you cannot really update the app that's already there, since the cod is loaded at device startup. The only solution is to close the simulator and redeploy.

It's a pain to redeploy a bunch of times, I know. You might want to make sure "Clear Filesystem" is unchecked in the Run Configuration as that can dramatically increase bootup delay if it is. Otherwise, there isn't anything you can do except get a faster computer or just test your code in longer intervals.

I came from Visual Studio development and I was very used to Debugging very frequently, but after working with BlackBerry for a while I now write a whole lot more code before I spend the time launching the simulator to test it. Luckily I got a quad-core machine which made the startup very fast but it's still a pain when compared to VS.
