'Generate ALX file' menu not exist in Eclipse



I am using Eclipse 3.5.2, Java plugin 1.1.2, when I select the project, there is no 'Generate ALX file' menu.


I have looked at the project description xml, there is no option to turn this function on.


Please advise.

Im using the most recent version and the ALX is automatically generated now when you go to "project" - "Blackberry" - Package all


It shows up in the deliverables folder. I believe the menu item was removed in 1.1.2

Did you check under the BUILD tab in the BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml?  There is a checkbox to have it create the ALX and it will show up in the Standard folder.

In project description xml check following part...



<Packaging OutputFileName="MyApp" OutputFolder="deliverables" PreBuildStep="" PostBuildStep="" CleanStep="" GenerateALXFile="true">
