Re: Error while building in Eclipse

I solved this particular problem by making a bogus class


package net.rim.device.api.ui.component;

public class ActiveRichTextField
public class RegionQueue { }

Compile, discard the outer class file, jar up the inner class file


javac net/rim/device/api/ui/component/ActiveRichTextField.java
rm net/rim/device/api/ui/component/ActiveRichTextField.class
jar cvf bb-bogus.jar net/rim/device/api/ui/component/*.class


Now add bb-bogus.jar to the build path.

Re: Error while building in Eclipse

I ran into the same problem last night.  However, after I upgraded my JDE plugin  to the latest (.67) everything seems to be there now.

Re: Error while building in Eclipse

Good thing this thread exists, i just had this issue with the new eclipse plugin version 1.52.
I have an old JDE project, if i use the 4.7.0 jar i get the AttributedTextIterator error, if i use 5.0.0 it goes away, but now complains about deprecated attributes no longer available like COVERAGE_CARRIER.

Seems i'll just have to ignore the error, the project is compiled with the JDE anyhow.

I also experience the issue with the same project setup. Switching to RIM API 5.0.0 actually solved it.
