Choosing Run As or Debug As -> BlackBerry Simulator should launch the simulator and install your application.
What BlackBerry Smartphone model and BlackBerry handheld software version are you testing on? You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.
What version of BlackBerry Java SDK are you using? Are you creating a BlackBerry Application or MIDlet?

Thank you very much for coming forward to help me!
I am usingBlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse Version: 1.3.0
BlackBerry 9800 Simulator 184.108.40.206
Initially I am trying to run a simple hello world application in the BB simulator, as the real time build is on, the code gets compiled, but when I run it using the simulator, it doesn't show up in the simulating screan.
It would be great if I get some help on this.

I'm not sure what you mean here. Do you mean you don't see the icon in the simulator or the application screen doesn't show up after clicking on the application?
BTW, you may want to upgrade to the latest release (1.5.0).

I don't see the icon in the simulator.
I followed one tutorial and it said the app icon will be in downloads. but in my case it doesn't exist even in downloads
I doubt whether I am missing a step to compile or to build a delevarable file before pressing "RUN" button

The Downloads folder doesn't exist anymore.
Have you created your own application or are you using one of the samples? Does this happen to any application or just this one? Can you try running the helloworld sample that comes with the BlackBerry Java SDK?

I have been trying to run BB samples and the app I created following that tutorial but none of them worked in the simulator.
I tried to run the helloworld sample of BB too but it too doesn't work!
This is the first time I am trying to programme for BB and it is for a university degree project. Therefore I desperately need help and I really appreciate you trying to help me.
In the application descriptor, there is a small cross near it as it is shown below.

Red X'es need to be taken care of first. What errors do you see in the Eclipse error Window?
