BlackBerry Java SDK v6.0.0 which Operating System on device?

I've installed BlackBerry Java SDK v6.0.0 and have the BlackBerry Java Plug-in in Eclipse.


Which Op System will run applications compiled and packaged with the Java SDK v6.0.0?


Is it just a release ready for OS v.6 or will Apps run on OS v.5.x?



I've compiled packaged etc and tried to load my ALX file onto my BB I get;


"No applications can be found. Your file may contain applications that already exist ..... " etc.


Google'd and it was suggested that I uninstalled BB Desktop, cleanregistry etc., downloaded latest version. Done, but no joy.

Re: BlackBerry Java SDK v6.0.0 which Operating System on device?

all devices are downwards compatible, but not upwards.

this means an application compiled with os 6 will run only on OS6 devices (and simulators).

if you compile with 4.2.1 all devices with OS 4.2.1 or higher, for example OS 6, will run it.
