JDE for Mac

Hopefully 2010 will be the year RIM releases a version of the JDE or Eclipse plugin for Mac!

Re: JDE for Mac

Eclipse is already multi-platform!  I'd love to see an all-java simulator package so I can move my development environment back to Linux (or even one of the *BSDs!). 

 

However, in the meantime, I'm plugging away at eclipse on Windows since that's where the simulator works. 

 

best regards!

Re: JDE for Mac

They announced at the 2009 BlackBerry Developer Conference that they are modifying the plugin and JDE so they will work on Mac and Linux and as a plus they confirmed that the Simulators will be Java only so they will work cross platform. The key is patience, they will come out with it eventually.

Re: JDE for Mac

Any news to this yet?

 

I just downloaded Eclipse for my Mac.   Never used it but excited about it.  

 

Just wanted to see if this is available yet or some kind of timeline.

 

Thanks

Re: JDE for Mac

The only Eclipse download so far is for Windows; why not make it generic so any Eclipse client can download it through the standard Eclipse plug-in method.  Why use a Windows only installer?

Re: JDE for Mac

You don't need to use the Windows installer.  You can install the BlackBerry plug-ins within Eclipse using our update site.  http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/javaappdev/javaupdate.jsp

 

That being said, Windows is currently the only officially supported OS for our development tools.

Re: JDE for Mac

What's the ETA on Mac development tools?  Was this not promised at the last developer conference?

Re: JDE for Mac

@ eaoliver: That's what I'm curious about as well. Will this be announced on blackberry's developer webpage?
