Need Help:: JDE on Linux

[ Edited ]

Hi I am new to BB world. I am trying to setup the Blackberry Java SDK on my Linux machine. I tried to search a lot on this forum and others also, but could not get satisfactory answers.

 

Can anyone please tell me the step by step procedure to setup the Java Dev Env on my Linux Machine.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04

Re: Need Help:: JDE on Linux

I would like to see it also. But when we know that: Java env will be killed sooner or later, there is a limiter workforce in RIM for Java there will never be a way to build your Java apps on Linux.

 

Of course there is a way but require their action: RIM shoul open source Java tools, push them on GitHub, and let community build packages from  the source.

Found my post helpfull? Like it! It solves your trouble? Help others and accept it as solution. Search before asking.

Re: Need Help:: JDE on Linux

If you search the forum (type Linux in the Search box) you will see that other people have tried to set up various development platforms for BB Java development on Linux.  I think everything is possible, with the exception of the Simulators which I think are still restricted to Windows only.  That said, maybe you can get them running under Linux using a VM environment?

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/18768/run-windows-in-ubuntu-with-vmware-player/

 

This is the wrong forum to find out about running the other development platforms under Linux.  Start here:

https://developer.blackberry.com/

and follow the Web works and native links to find out more.

 

Download links for Native certainly include Linux.  Regarding Webworks, I'm not sure.

 

Choose an appropriate forum from here:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Application-Platforms/ct-p/app_plat

if you want to ask questions to people who develop using the other approaches

 

Good luck.

Check with this thread

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/Eclipse-JDE-Plugin-Linux-a-working-environme...

 

  1. Webworks development you can do without setup. Install Ant and webworks. Make ant script to build/run the application.

Get webworks form the following link

https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks/

 

Thanks

Re: Need Help:: JDE on Linux

Actually I was little confused earlier. I now understand that JDE is going to be out dated or removed slowly from the BB system. So I need to install Eclipse plugin for BB.

Before moving into the devlopment I want to clear few queries.

I want to know that even if  I download the plugin and SDKs will I be able to test them on Linux or Do I have to move to windows for that. I currently don't have any BB phone so need to test on Simulator only.

 

Does BB support Netbeans also?

 

Since I am a Java and Android developer I will be more comfortable in Java dev. In future releases Java dev will be supported or will it also be replaced by something like HTML5?

 

I have little experience in Qt/QML also. So moving forward in BB dev will it help me?

 [I Think bb does not support simulator on mac & linux so you have to move on windows]

 [I Think NO]

[Yes you can create apps in html5 https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/]

 

 

I have little experience in Qt/QML also. So moving forward in BB dev will it help me?

[Yes it will help you for BB 10. Following is link https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/]
