Blackberry Maps thows exception 104 and does not draw map in simulator under Eclipse

Eclipse SDK
Version: 3.6.2
Build id: M20110210-1200

 

Blackberry Smarthphone Simulator 3.0.0.60

 

Symptoms

 

When you start Blackberry Maps application, JVM error 104  Uncaught NullPointerException is thrown and when acknowledged the maps do not draw.

 

I've confirmed network connectivity, internet browser works just fine.  I found another  thread that suggested starting the MDS-CS in advance of running the simulator and that has had no impact.

 

This is a freshly installed and updated version of Eclipse.

 

Thanks

Re: Blackberry Maps thows exception 104 and does not draw map in simulator under Eclipse

This is a known issue with many 5.0 and 6.0 version of BlackBerry smartphone simulator.  The latest releases of the 6.0 simulators should work fine.  Note that this issue does not exist on real BlackBerry Smartphones.

Re: Blackberry Maps thows exception 104 and does not draw map in simulator under Eclipse

I'm having this problem with a 6.0 simulator as well.  The strange thing is the maps were working for a period of time and now for some strange reason they have stopped working.  I've not upgraded the version as there are no newer versions and I've tried to clean the project and the simulator, nothing seems to fix the issue.
