Eclipse Plugin for Helios (Eclipse 3.6)

this week the next release of Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) will be available.

 

any info about getting an update of BlackBerry Eclipse Plugin ?

 

I tried to test while Helios Milestones are out but it didn't work because of Plugin version ranges < 3.6 M7 etc.

 

there are so many enhancements made for Eclipse 3.6 and I'm doing all my development work (with exception of BlackBerry) since M6.

 

I'm also working on a UI generator using Xtext 1.0 and Xpand/Xtend 1.0 (all part of Helios) to generate BlackBerry UI. (will become open source)

I guess the Eclipse plugin does not work on Eclipse Helios..? I was gonna try, but I search the forum first for any clues whether its gonna work or not.

Re: Eclipse Plugin for Helios (Eclipse 3.6)

I tried it with some milestones of helios

and it didn't work because of version-ranges of the plugins

asked also on monday at blackberry dev day in hamburg,

but got no answer when it will run under helios

Re: Eclipse Plugin for Helios (Eclipse 3.6)

many changes in helios can be used in galileo as well, just use the update functionality.

the eclipse plugin is usually bound to a certain eclipse version as it integrates pretty deeply. you will have to wait for a new version.

Re: Eclipse Plugin for Helios (Eclipse 3.6)

Also waiting for a new eclipse plugin for Eclipse Helios. I tried to run it in Eclipse Helios by patching files by hand, but couldn't get it to work. When trying to build, all specific RIM instructions were red marked.

Re: Eclipse Plugin for Helios (Eclipse 3.6)

Any news on Helios support for the BB 1.1 Plugin?

 

Another question: Has anyone been able to integrate it with Netbeans 6.9?

 

Thanks!

Re: Eclipse Plugin for Helios (Eclipse 3.6)

I would be happy even for a beta version of the plugin that would work with 3.6
