Blackberry Developers Zone on blackberry.com does not work

Most probably this is an offtopic for this forum section.

 

I just tried to download some software from http://www.blackberry.com/developers

 

I went here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/downloads/EclipsePlugIn.jsp

 

Clicked on "Download" , entered login/password and get the following message:

 

**************************************************** ********************************************

HTTP Status 500 -

type Exception report

message

description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

java.lang.NullPointerException

note The full stack trace of the root cause is available in the Apache Tomcat/5.5.20 logs.


Apache Tomcat/5.5.20

**************************************************** ********************************************

 

I suspect that something goes wrong on blackberry site Smiley Happy

 

Can it be fixed ?

Re: Blackberry Developers Zone on blackberry.com does not work

I went to the download link you supplied

 http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/downloads/EclipsePlugIn.jsp

 

filled in my details and went straight through.  I did not need to enter a login/password.  So no problem from my PC.

 

I'm surprised that you are being asked for the login/password - is this some authentication/proxy server on your network?

Re: Blackberry Developers Zone on blackberry.com does not work

 

There is no proxy in my network.

When I opened http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/downloads/EclipsePlugIn.jsp I clicked on "Download now" button on the top of screen.

 

After that the following address opened: https://www.blackberry.com/CorpDevZone/login.do

 

with the following text on the page:

Re: Blackberry Developers Zone on blackberry.com does not work

You are absolutely right.  I just tried from another computer and on that computer, it required me to login.  Obviously I have some sort of cookie on my normal computer which auto logs me in.  I'd suggest you create an account - or another one if the one you currently have is not working.  I think this is a different login to the one for the forum.

Re: Blackberry Developers Zone on blackberry.com does not work

Yes, you're right. I registered another email address, and registered another account to download a piece of RIM software.

 

That's is not too convenient way, but that is one workaround that works.

 

Thank you, Peter, for assistance.

It sounds like there is an issue with your first account.  You can contact devsupport@rim.com with your account details to investigate this further.
