What tools do I need in order to start programming in Blackberry?

Sorry for starting with this question but.... I try to get started in Blackberry programming?

 

Is there something like Visual Studio that lets you create forms and connect to Databases for Blakcberry's own language?

 

Also are there any video tutorials for this purpose ?

 

Thanks again.

Than.

Re: What tools do I need in order to start programming in Blackberry?

Welcome to BlackBerry development!

 

The place to start is by visiting the BlackBerry Developer Zone at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/. Click on the "Getting Started" link on the left and you will find links to all sorts of learning information, including videos, development guidelines, and lots of other great stuff. Some of that information will tell you about setting up a development environment from scratch.

 

The basic tool you need is a Java JDK (available from http://java.sun.com/) and RIM's Java Development Environment (JDE), which can be downloaded from the BlackBerry Developer Zone. Many people, however, prefer to develop using a combination of a Java JDK, Eclipse, and the BlackBerry Java Plugin for Eclipse. (Eclipse is available from http://www.eclipse.org/) Eclipse is a full-featured development environment with a huge number of available plugins, including forms and database connectivity.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks for your valuable information. I will try to set Eclipse as well.

 

I am registering in that BlackBerry Developer Zone at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/ so I will have a look if they have some video tutorials.

 

Every start is difficult and uncertain...

 

Thanks

Atha
