Hi all, a challenging task is ahead of me and i welcome all your opinions, suggestions on this.
I need to develop an app, where it automates the developement of the BB application. In other words, an application should be developed that generates teh cod file for HelloWorld App of BB. The user just take that and install it on the device.
Is this possible?? Its toooo early to think of possibilities, . I just want to know where to start for this kind of development. I want the approach. Is RIM supports this kind of dev? Do we have any tools?

We could get kind of circular here couldn't we? What tool would the user need to run your Hello World automatic development application. And how would s/he install this and your automatic development environment? Would the user have a more complex installation to use your auto development tool, than just following some printed instructions that worked on the standard tools? Would the user need to understand how the standard tools worked to use your automatic development tool?
Not wishing to be negative, just not sure how you expect this will help the average developer?

HECL could maybe be a solution for the OP.

I use bash scripts, and if this forum would run on lynx I would that here instead of firefox which does VM
everytime I now fill in a form as 500M isn't enoug any more.- it can take a minute to see a key echo...
See all my old posts as this was the first thing I did. The only problem I can't work around so far xccxcvc ( wtf?????? )
is that atttgtt thg signature tool has to popup a screen- I cold probably supply it a dummy class but oterh than typing in wrong windo so far not a problem. We use it to make branded vbersions of multiple OS vuilds and it
upload to server too. See my posts about "omniscient" or "mix and maatch" maybe since reduction to simplte
text lets you operate tools togeterh from different vednors, try doing that, or anythin,g with a gui.
( why does this html beed to be so complicated? I have 500M of memory and every keyt causes my disk light to stay on for seconds waiting to echo the cahr, page fauls through the roof)

Buy more memory - the time you will save in one day will more than pay for it. Have you tried running any off the newer Simulators in 500M?

Getting back to the o.p. - this is the type of question that falls under the category 'if you have to ask, you shouldn't be attempting it".
And re: performance, my 2GHz, 4Gb dual-core machine (by no means a "top of the line" box) cost about $800. IMHO, hardware is much cheaper than my time.

Agree completely with RexDoug.
Mike - You may be happy using command line tools and non GUI editors, but I suspect most people find the productivity gains from running more sophisticated tools more than pays for the extra memory and computing power required. For example, when using notepad, it won't tell you that the method name is spelt incorrectly or give you a list of possible options, so I'm betting you have to run a compile to find out that you have the name wrong and then look up the API to find out the correct name. Compare the cost of your time wit the cost of the new hardware. And with the smallest netbook that Dell sells (in this country anyway), having 1GB, you can hardly blame Web developers for attempting to make their pages as useful and easy to use as possible can you? Anyway, this is really off topic. You could always start a new Thread to gripe about this if you want!
