sample EmbeddedMapDemo doesn't work on eclipse plugin 1.3

I've just downloaded the last BB eclipse plugin1.3 and I can't make the EmbeddedMapDemo worked on the simulator.

No maps seem to appear. I've got just a grey panel with a little red square and a cercle behind.

And sometimes I've got a JVM error 104 encaught EOFException.

 

Does this sample requires a specific setting of the simulator or of the OS? Did anyone achieve to make it work?

Thanx for help, Léon

Re: sample EmbeddedMapDemo doesn't work on eclipse plugin 1.3

What BlackBerry Java SDK and BlackBerry smartphone simulator model and BlackBerry device software version are you testing on?  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.

 

There are issues with BlackBerry Maps itself in many 6.0 simulators.  Are you able to run BlackBerry Maps without an exception being thrown?

Re: sample EmbeddedMapDemo doesn't work on eclipse plugin 1.3

Here are the versions I use. 

java plugin : 1.3.0.201102031007-19

BlackBerry Java SDK Version: 6.0.0.30

Blackberry 9800 simulator 

Blackberry smartphone simulator 3.0.0.60

Do you have other options to simulate this feature? I really need it.

Thanx in advance, Léon

PS: the Blackberry Maps are not working, I've got a null pointer exceptions

This is an issue with BlackBerry Maps in the simulator you are using.  The only workaround is to use a newer (7.0) or older (5.0) simulator.
