Hi I'm new to developing for the blackberry, but not to java or eclipse. I've downloaded the bb plugin for eclipse and have been getting familiar with the setup.
I can't get my application to stop on the breakpoints I've set. I've followed these steps but I can't get the application to stop on breakpoints... I've even tried setting breakpoints on a provided example... that doesn't work either.
Any help would be appreciated.

i followed your instructions on how to attach to handheld, but when i try to debug it, pop-ups about unfound debug files appear. i just ignore them and continue. it says in the output window "attach: success". but i cannot find the icon of the application on my device. is there something else i need to do? my blackberry is not registered on any BES yet. is the BES necessary for just debugging my applications on the device? i need help! please!

The warning means that the IDE was unable to find the debug files for your BlackBerry handheld. The debug files for the BlackBerry handheld software are installed with the BlackBerry Simulator. This means you'll need to install a BlackBerry Simulator that has the exact same version of BlackBerry handheld software you are using on your device.
Note that this process does not load the application onto your BlackBerry handheld. You'll need to do this first before debugging.

Hi, I have an 8800 handheld wich has software v184.108.40.206 installed on it. I have found no simulator download available with EXACT this software version. The closest is v220.127.116.11. What should I do to be able to debug with this device? Downgrade device software?

Well I'm stumped. I have a BB 9000 device running OS 18.104.22.1681. I also have installed the simulator for BB 9000 OS 22.214.171.1241. I can connect my device to my PC. I can use Desktop manager to install my application onto the device. My application runs on the device. I can debug my application in the simulator.
However, the one thing I can't do is debug the device connected to my PC using the Eclipse IDE. Yes - I have set up a debug configuration that attaches to the device. Selected 'Debug' on that configuration results in exactly nothing happening. Nothing good, nothing bad. Just plain nothing.
