I have developed an application compatible with the Blackberry non touch devices. Now, i would like to run the same on Storm 1 and Storm 2. I have read that it can be possible if the the compatible mode is ON. But, i am not able to run the application successfully on Storm 2 even the compatible mode is ON.
I can not enter the values through virtual keyboard in the text box. The touch is not working properly.
My application is compatible with OS 4.2 to OS 4.6 on non touch devices.
Also, Do we have any simulator for the Storm 2 which can be integrated with the eclipse for the debugging purpose.
Thanks for your information.

The version 5.0 BlackBerry Java SDK plug-in for Eclipse contains the BlackBerry Storm 2.
This guide should help with making your application compatible with touch screen devices.

I tried the blckberry component pack 5.0 for eclipse (eJDE-5_0_0_7_Component.zip).
But surprisingly it did not have the storm2 devices (contains 9000, 9500, 8900 devices)
Please correct me if i am wrong:
Storm1 devices are: 9500,9530
Storm2 devices are : 9520, 9550
Strangle we do not have a development environment to test on storm2 devices.
I faced issue like the keyboard is not responding and text input fields in my application and the exception causing application crash. I need to debug these issues on storm2 emulators.

If you install the BlackBerry Java SDK 22.214.171.124, you'll get a 9550 simulator.
You can install this via the Software Update in Eclipse.

Did you figure out what the problem was here? I am having a similar issue. My application's text fields are not allowing input on a Storm 9550 device, however they work fine in the simulator. Number filtered fields are working in both. I am wondering if you found a solution.

experience same issue.
my edit field ( build with 4.5 , so running compatible mode on Storms ) virtual keyboard works well on Storms prior or equal to 126.96.36.1997 , but not afterwards.
Any official word from RIM? and any suggested workaround?

The only way I could get this to work for now was to build another COD file with the 4.7 JRE that users with 4.7 OS and later could use instead of the 4.5 version. That did the trick for our user.
