@Raghuveer:  Cannot help you on the bluetooth programming but here is what I documented for setting up your Eclipse environment for WebWorks.

INSTALLATION (Assumes Windows 7 32 bit)


1.  Download and install the JDK.

2. Copy your install path to the windows clipboard.

  • Open Windows Explorer and locate the path to your JDK install.  Mine was -- > c:\program files\java\jdk1.6.0_24.
  • Copy or make note of the path.

3.  Add/edit environment variables:

  • Start Button --> Computer --> Right click --> Properties
  • Click Advance system settings (left menu).  System Properties dialog will open and you should be on the "Advanced" tab.
  • Click the "Environment Variables" Button.
  • Under "System Variables", click the "New" button and add a new system variable using your JDK path. 
  •         VARIABLE VALUE: c:\program files\java\jdk1.6.0_24
  • Under "System Variables", edit your variable "PATH" to include both the %JAVA_HOME%; and %JAVA_HOME%\BIN.  NOTE: You may need to paste this at the front so not other java variables affect this.



5.   Download and install the Blackberry SDK for phone or Tablet.  BOTH INSTALLERS COME WITH THEIR OWN ECLIPSE ENVIRONMENT SO YOU WILL INSTALL THEM IN SEPERATE LOCATIONS.  I installed mine in C:\BlackBerryDevelopment\SDK\Tablet and C:\BlackBerryDevelopment\SDK\Phone. 

NOTE: You will need a BlackBerry Developer Zone account to download these.

TABLET:  See here (http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/webworks.jsp) for instructions on install and setup of your environment.


6.  Sometimes you will have memory issues from repeatedly opening and closing phone simulator so here are a few tips that I found useful to help.


  • Add run parameters to your Eclipse shortcut for BlackBerry Phone development.

Find your Exclipse.exe in <install path> (DEFAULT: C:\Program Files\BlackBerry WebWorks Plug-in Eclipse). 


Make a shortcut then paste the run parameters from 


-vmargs -Xms768m -Xmx1024m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m






"C:\BlackBerry\IDE\Phone\BlackBerry WebWorks Plug-in Eclipse\eclipse.exe" -vmargs -Xms768m -Xmx1024m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m



  • Clean your projects after changing devices (simulators). In Eclipse: Select project -- Project --> Clean




Hope this helps!
