is it okay to simulate apps for bb10 using 9900 simulator?

hi guys,


i have downloaded eclipse plugin for blackberry 10 and tried to simulate the code,

but it excutes blackberry 9900 simulator.

just wondered whether it is fine to use it or i'll have to use some other simulator.


ps. unable to execute bb10 simulator via VMPlayer since i'm using linux in my laptop.. (can't change the zoom size nor connect to the simulator using controller provided)

therefore currently using the one embeded in Eclipse (i'm running it on the Windows via VMWare)

It sounds like you downloaded the BlackBerry Java Development Environment for Eclipse, if so those apps will not be compatible with BlackBerry 10. You should download one of the tools listed as compatible.


What language(s) are you comfortable with?

Goodbye everybody!
