I have this environment:
BlackBerry Java Plug-in 18.104.22.168911020017-11
The BlackBerry plugin runs fine if I create a *new* BlackBerry project and I can also debug it on the BlackBerry simulator.
But how can I debug on a BlackBerry emulator (or on real USB connected device)
my existing JAD/JAR Midlet?
(an existing crossplatform project running fine on Nokia and Sony Ericsson)?
There is no menu item where I could choose to configure the BlackBerry plugin,
and in the Debug configuration I can't choose my Midlet project for BlackBerry debugging.

I dn't have any working expereince on Eclipse, but you can debug using JDE.
In JDE select Debug -> Attach to -> Handheld -> Device PIN. If the debugger attaches properly, you can see the results on output window of JDE.
You can also use ALT+LGLG to view the Event Logs on device.
Give a look at the other Tools/feature avaialble on JDE.

Thank you for this hint.
But it is not a real solution, I need to transfer the jad/jar complicated to the device before I can debug the open issues.
Is it somehow possible to copy some BlackBerry config files to my jad/jar MTJ Midlet project and
suddenly, just as magic, can debug into the BlackBerry simulators?
And finally, click on the debug on device button of eclipse and the jad/jar are deployed via USB on to the real device
and I can debug there - seamlessly?
Currently I'm stuck with the remaining tow/three BlackBerry specific issues of my Midlet (which is running fine on Nokia and SonyEricsson).

I can now debug my Midlet with eclipse 3.5.1 and eclipse BB plugin 1.1.1.
It is not very harmonic to do so:
* Jars and dependend projects don't work, so I have copied the complete involved source code
from e.g. kxml2-min and my own J2ME basic libraries into the Midlet project I want to debug
-> Not very smart, but it works
* I've created a dummy BlackBerry HelloWorld project and copied/merged the .classpath, .project and
BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml into the root directory of my Midlet project
* Now I can debug in the BlackBerry Emulator.
Unfortunately I always need to restart the emulator for each code change which takes some time ...
* Trying to debug the Midlet via USB on my BlackBerry 8800 4.5 failed with timeout.
The BlackBerry shows forever "Debugger attaching..."
I hope this helps others for the first step,
any ideas about the remainign issues are welcome,
