i've searched these forums for the answer to my situation, but haven't found anything that really sheds any light on my problem.
Eclipse 3.4.2 w/ JDE Plugin 126.96.36.199 & Content Pack 188.8.131.52
Let me start off by saying that developing for blackberry thus far has been extremely frustrating. I have been unable to find a decent, or acceptable, way of debugging the problems that i'm having. If anyone has any suggestions on a GOOD way of debugging blackberry applications, please speak up!
I've been working on an application that was working fine in the MDS simulator. I would hit play and the simulator would be launched and the application would be there, waiting to be run. It wouldn't always execute correctly, there might be an exception, but at least the icon would be in the simulator, waiting to be run.
Now there's nothing. No icon, no debug, no errors in the project. Just nothing. very frustrating
So i'm here, asking for help.
Before someone asks, Yes, my project is active. It's actually marked as "Always make project active" in the Blackberry Project Properties in the project properties.
Is this behaviour caused by an error in the project? if so, what type of error, and how can i fix it. It's not a Java error, Eclipse is NOT showing any errors in the project.
Let me know if you need any more information
Thanks in advance!!

Some things to try:
* remove all compiler artifacts from your project directory (COD, JAD) and try another build.
* check the simulator directory and see if your COD file is being deployed there (it gets copied after successful build).
* Try running "clean.bat" in your simulator directory
I would also suggest that the BB JDE is a much more "friendly" IDE if you are not an Eclipse expert.

Unfortunetly, i've tried all that to no avail....
And i am more familiar with Eclipse... the JDE is not "friendly" at all....
I've been able to move my files into another project and they show up on the simulator, so it seems to be something related to the project... but the JDE has this type of behaviour as well...
Still looking for a decent way to debug projects if anyone has any suggestions

I use stock eclipse for developmnet - without the bb plugins (Just alter the installed JRE and compiler settinsg).
For compiling, testing, debugging, profiling and optimizing, I use the JDE.
So both eclipse and JDE are open together and I like the way both of them do what they do best. If I have to ensure that the code works on more than one OS's, all I have to do is open another JDE

my application is not shown in the downloads folder of my blackberry 8800 simulator.I am using jde 4.5.
I have searched almost all the posts on this issue but i cannot find a right solution. I have made all changes like running clean.bat, creating new work space and even reinstalled everythig including plug in, but I found no solution.

I am also facing the same problem. Sometimes it works fine means, the cod and jar files are generated in the deliverables folder of eclipse project. Sometimes not. but all other applications created on my eclipse are working fine.

I know the following can sound obvious, but have you made sure that in your blackberry application descriptor the checkbox with the label "Do not display application icon on the Blackberry home screen" is not checked?
If it isn't, sorry for meddling into this.
In case you don't have any XML editor, the line to edit would be:
<Application Type="BlackBerry Application" MainMIDletName="" MainArgs="" HomeScreenPosition="0" StartupTier="7" IsSystemModule="false" IsAutostartup="false"/>.
I hope this be helpful for those who face the same issue in the future.
