I have been looking at some of the examples and notice that a different instance of the app can be run - e.g., at startup or through some context menu.
In a normal desktop app, the app will appear in its own program space and identical static variables would not be accessible from each other program.
E.g., if I had
static boolean myStaticVar;
Then each separate instance of my app would have its own variable, and changing the variable within one instance of the app would not affect the value from the other instance of the app.
Is this the same for Blackberry apps or are static variables global to multiple instances of the app.
Solved! Go to Solution.

No, global static variables are only accessible from the current instance of the application. My application uses an alternate entry point, and I can't even access variable of the autorun instance from the selection instance without utilizing persistent or runtime store.
Hope that helps,
