How do I create a new project, build and deploy from the command line? Thanks

This is totally handicapped at the moment, until QNX provides a method to allow us to see console output when publishing via command line.


But, the basic process to do this is:

1. Setup your app.xml file (main manifest)

2. Create a swf somehow

3. Package manifest with swf into a .bar file using the blackberry packager in the SDK


You can do this with a bunch of different IDE's:

1. FlashBuilder

2. Flash CS5

3. Eclipse with FB Plugin

4. FDT

5. Flash Develop

I wrote out some more specific instructions earlier, you can find them at http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/forums/forumtopicprintpage/board-id/tablet/message-id/238/ .


It may be possible to debug from the command line too, I've been looking at fdb which is included with the PlayBook SDK (as it's a part of Flex). I haven't got it working yet though, but if you want to take a look it is promising.


Edit: I've got debugging working from the command line on Linux (it'll be the same on Win/Mac). I'm writing up a how to to explain the development and debugging process.
