I have been working with JDE4.7 and I know how to create and run a project in simulator using JDE.
Now, I would like to switch on to eclipse for development.
I have downloaded eJDE-4_7_0_46_Component.zip and successfully installed it, using installation instructions provided by the BB site.
Can anyone guide me exactly through the steps, as to, how to create a new project, build and run an application for BB in a simulator from eclipse IDE? I am very much familiar with eclipse-java development also.
Please help me with the steps.

Eclipse is the world's most widely used IDE for Java. So, it would have been more than great help if RIM provides some good documentations for BB project configuration in eclipse.
I have the same problem mentioned in http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/mess
There are no slutions given in that thread.

I had briefly outlined the steps to get the blackberry workspace , in this post http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/mess
Check if you have done all of them.
Which version of eclipse are you using?

I have done these steps before itself. But as I told, I cannot see Blackberry in, "New->Project->BlackBerry" section.
I have uploaded a self-explanatory screenshot of eclipse configuration in http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dfzrknk_60vqjd98dw
I have downloaded and used Eclipse Ganymede, from the link provided by RIM.
Pleae help with solution.

I have got the thing working for me with the following setup:
1, Install the latest Java jdk 1.6.0_13
2, Install the latest eclipse version 3.4.2
3, Download the BlackBerry JDE Plug-in for Eclipse v1
Run BlackBerry_JDE_PluginFull_18.104.22.168.exe to install the blackberry plugin for eclipse IDE. After that open your eclipse ide and following the steps as below:
1, Select Windows->Preferences, there you will see "BlackBerry JDE"
2, Select File->New->Project, you will see "BlackBerry" folder with two options as "BlackBerry Project" and "BlackBerry Resource File". Just select the "BlackBerry Project" option
3, If you want to import the already existing BlackBerry JDE projects into eclipse, then right click on the project menu on package explorer and in BlackBerry folder you can choose "Existing BlackBerry Projects into Workspace", then in the next screen you can select the project workspace file such as .jdp or .jdw to import the project
4, For choosing simulator: Select a project and select Run->Run Configurations->BlackBerry Simulator->DebugServer, there select the "Simulator" tab, there you can select the Profile such as, 8300-IDE, 8830-IDE etc., If you can't find a particular profile eg., 9530-IDE, then download the component pack associated for that profile.
Now you can start coding your application and running the same, which will open in the configured profile in the simulator.
This may help you

My guess is that , you have not installed the plugin properly. Reinstall it again as per baskaraninfo's steps mentioned above and you should be fine.
