BlackBerry Web Icon example not working with JDE 4.6

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I read the following to articles

 

http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgecenterpublic/livelink.exe/fetch/2000/348583/800332/800440/How_To_...

The sample code (zip file) for the two articles doesn't work in JDE 4.6. If I debug the Bold emulator starts but I don't see the web icon.

 

How can one use this code for web icons if he doesn't know anything about Java development, like me?

 

Thank you.

Hello,

 

could someone from RIM or anybody else please provide a working example or template that we can use to create BlackBerry web icons?

 

Thank you.

Re: BlackBerry Web Icon

Does the application build successfully?  If not, what errors do you receive?  Am I correct to assume you are creating a BlackBerry CLDC application and not converting the sample to a MIDlet?

 

Also note that when using the Precision theme new application icons appear in the Downloads folder, not the root home screen folder.

Depending on your BlackBerry handheld software version, you may have to call the showBrowser method of BrowserSession to bring the browser to the foreground.

 

You can see an example here:
