Default Advice for linux/mac users?

Please Login to Remove!

I am interested in pursuing learning some development for the bb, but I do not run windows. What are the options for linux people when it comes to the emulator and the sdk? Anyone here have any experience they can share? Thanks!

JDE is windows-only application for now.

Thanks for the input. Can apps be built for the bb using anything other than j2me? If I wanted to use C# to build a bb app is that possible? Thanks!

No, only java. But not strictly J2ME.

BlackBerry API includes J2ME (MIDP2.0 + CLDC1.1 APIs) + a lot of their own RIM-specific APIs.

That's too bad. I was going to find a way to port Castle of the Winds to Blackberry but it looks like that will have to take a back seat since I am about to embark on a study of C#. I know I cannot do that on linux either :(

Default What's the best approach to write a Blackberry application to access Salesforce.com?

Salesforce.com has a very rich Web services API (http://www.salesforce.com/us/develop.../api/index.htm) to accessing information in their system.

By default (not on a mobile device) the APIs that Salesforce has available use Apache axis and a bunch of other jars to do the actual web services calls.

I want to get retrieve/update information from Salesforce.com from my Blackberry. I see that many folks are using kSOAP for web services calls (because of the small footprint), but kSOAP doesn't support WSDL.

What's the best approach for this type of project? Any ideas/thoughts are appreciated.

Have you tried the MDS Studio or the Visual Studio Plugin.. they are designed to consume webservices for the BlackBerry..

So, I'm interested in programming for the Blackberry and other Mobile devices, but I am currently running OS X on my machines. Does anyone know if the JDE would run on an emulated version of windows? Just exploring the possibilities.

Thank you!

Post HowTo: Develop MDS and JDE BlackBerry Apps...

This might be of interest. I wrote four articles for LotusUserGroup.org on how to develop BlackBerry MDS and BlackBerry JDE applications.

Granted the source system is Lotus Notes, but since I'm using web services and 'push http' services, this might be generic enough to get started with.

Anywhoo - 20,000 words of 'getting your feet wet':

Mobilizing Domino Applications onto Blackberry Devices

Hope it helps,

I am having issues getting my programs to compile. They do fine if I set it as Private, but when I set it as Debug or Release, I get the following:
Code:
Building helloworld

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 4.3.0\bin\rapc.exe  -quiet import="..\..\..\..\..\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 4.3.0\lib\net_rim_api.jar" codename=helloworld helloworld.rapc warnkey=0x52424200;0x52525400;0x52435200 C:\RIM\BlackBerry\8130\helloworld\helloworld\com\rim\samples\helloworld\HelloWorld.java

I/O Error: Cannot run program "javac": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

Error while building project
Did I miss a step? Also, why it is that none of the samples/tutorials tell you how to get your sample on the simulator? I am struggling with that part too.

Since this thread is sticky, the code signing key's price should probably be changed to $20 to reflect its new price.

Hi everyone. I have a question:

Code:
SupportedAttachmentPart attachPart =
                    new SupportedAttachmentPart(multipart,
                    "image/jpeg",
                    selectedFile, readFile(selectedFile));
        multipart.addBodyPart(attachPart);
the above code is part of my custom email application. when i try to send my email, the attachments doesnt appear as they suppose to appear. There is no additional view attachment from the menu.
from the code above, I know that the selectedFile is a jpg file. am i doing something wrong here? thanks

Does anyone have any idea on this? Thanks.
I too would love to know about this. Has anyone tried hacking on it? In theory we should be able to cross-compile almost any language to the BB's processor, if we have a way of discovering the system calls and loading the code. I'd be interested in working with others on figuring it out, if someone knows how to start.
It's been over two years since this has been posted. Does anyone know if this is possible (I'm using the 8820)?
