Cannot pass argument to main()



I am having problems passing arguments to the main method of the class through the app descriptor. In the field, application arguement I have added just a string and when I run the application through the debugger, I get:

"java.util.Arrays cannot be resolved to a type"


Any ideas on how I can resolve this??

Re: Cannot pass argument to main()

You can pass!, In the BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file in Alternate Entry Points option(The third tab see in left bottom) there you have to add the name of your argument.In that you also will find application arguments give your argument name.
