I've been using the Blackberry Plugin to Eclipse for a number of months now and was quite excited about the idea of being able to rebuild my code without having to re-launch the simulator.
However, after spending a good few hours playing around with it I couldn't get it working the way I wanted and went back to the old plugin.
The main reason for this was lack of a post-build event on projects. This was present in the last plugin but seems to have been removed. Ant is no good for me as I need the event to run after the build but before the pre-verify occurs. There does appear to be a postbuild in BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml however it isn't documented at all and doesn't work.
This is a significant breaking change and should have been properly documented as it is a real barrier to uptake for anyone making use of third party jar files.
