I've been looking at the JDE and I notice that under the Properties for the Workspace, it has the main jar file to link in.
Is that all one has to have to build for a certain revision....i.e. the correct jar file????
In that case, you just make sure your code is coded for that revision and you build using that jar file and you are done??
Am I correct here or not?
Also, is there a way to download all the .jar files for different revs without downloading the whole JDE revision????

You'll need to download an install the BlackBerry JDE Component Pack plug-in for Eclipse. The version of rapc can also differ between comonent packs.
You can change the active component pack in Eclipse by clicking on the Window menu, selecting Preferences, expanding BlackBerry JDE, clicking on Installed Components and then choosing a different component pack version.

I don't use Eclipse for certain reasons.
I'm a professional software engineer (been in the business for 26 years) and I sometimes have to use Eclipse. I don't like putting any old project under Eclipse. The problem with doing that is that certain versions of Eclipse are tied to certain versions of Eclipse plugins. So, while one project may work with the version of Eclipse and your plugins, another project might require a different version of eclipse with different versions of those same plugins.....this makes workign with Eclipse and multiple independent projects very difficult, so I try to avoid eclipse given the choise.
The JDE is as good (if not better) than using Eclipse in any case, so I'd rather stick with that.
So are you saying I need to get the Eclipse plugin and just use those components (regardless of whether I'm using Eclipse or not) with the
So, then I just need to swap out rapc and the jar file's.
BTW, Mark, do you know if there are new APIs being supported in the upcoming .113 release?????
I'm trying to figure out how to focus the camera, disable the sound when taking snapshots and things like that. Maybe changing white levels, chosing the filter as whiteboard or sepia or any other of the camera settings programmatically.

If you are using the BlackBerry JDE, then the version of BlackBerry JDE used to build your application should be equal to or lower than your target handheld software version. You don't need to change anything in your project, just open it in a different BlackBerry JDE version.
I am not sure what release you are referring to, but if only the last digit has changed (i.e. #.#.#.113) there would not be any new APIs.
