Eclipse Plugin - automated Exception clauses

Hello all,


Recently moved to the BB OS platform from MIDlet development.  I am lacking proficiency in Eclipse settings, specifically the setting that allowed Eclipse to automatically fill in an Exceptions pertaining to method calls.


ex)  When calling a method with Exceptions that need to be caught, Eclipse will warn me when using the J2ME platform, but not when developing in BB OS. 


Is this due to BB's runinng their own JVM's?  Is there a way to add this functionality in the JDE-plugin environment?


Thank you for any help.

Re: Eclipse Plugin - automated Exception clauses

You should see an error wihin Eclipse when an exception that must be caught is not being caught.  For example, if you have the PIM.getInstance().openPIMList(.......) methods being called you should see an error if PIMException is not being caught.


If you are not seeing this, please provide the version of Eclipse and plug-in you are using.

Re: Eclipse Plugin - automated Exception clauses

Thank you for your reply.  I was getting a bit ahead of myself I was used to using soley MIDlet API's, of which many threw exceptions.
