I decided to have a go at developing some code for a project I have in mind on the BlackBerry Storm.
I downloaded the BlackBerry JDE version 4.7.0 which includes the Storm simulator. I also checked that I had the latest Java SDK installed (jdk-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe) which the BB JDE needs to run.
I set up the environment variables on my PC and tried to build the very simplest of the example projects - helloworlddemo. It appeared to build and upon hitting Debug Go, the simulator eventually appeared.
However, the application is nowhere to be found - not on the main screen or under 'applications'.
I tried using the File menu to load a java file but still nothing happens.
Are these applications really getting into the simulator? Is it just me being too thick to operate a Blackberry?
Is there some secret combination of touch keys that must be pressed or is the code disappearing down some Java black hole? I'm defeated without writing a single line of code - not even an error message for my efforts.
How is it possible that I cannot even get the supplied code to do anything?
Please can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Frustrated of Oxford
After reading documentation on the Sun site and on this one, I determined that what I needed to do was to download Sun's jdk-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe SDK and the BlackBerry Storm simulator 188.8.131.52. I did this and set the environment variables and the IDE appears to build the sample projects and produce the .cod files. Clicking debug Go launches the simulator as expected but I cannot find any trace of the application on it. I've even tried using the file menu and navigating to a directory where the .cod files are located and still nothing happens.
I can't even get the simplest Hellow World demo to appear.
I'm running the RIM IDE on a windows PC which meets all the criteria as far as I can tell.
All the documentation I've seen suggests this should be a simple process but unless some one can help me past this first and very basic hurdle, I fear I shall be forever stuck here...
Many thanks to anyone who can suggest what obvious mistake I must have made.

Did you look in the Downloads folder?
