Im a little confused here.
Im trying to develop some apps for blackberry phones with OS 6.0 but the Eclipse i download contains the JDE 7.1 version.
So if i use it would i be able to create apps for any OS from 5.0 to 7.0 ?

I saw this
" Each additional SDK version will allow you to develop against the respective BlackBerry OS version within your existing Eclipse environment.
It is important that you develop using the right version of the BlackBerry SDK for your intended target market. Applications built against a particular version are forward-compatible with newer BlackBerry Java OS versions, but they are not backward-compatible with older versions. "
But couldnt understand this "particular version are forward-compatible" ?

Putting this another way, is that if you develop something on the OS 6.0 Version, it will run in OS 6.0, OS 7.0 and OS 7.1 devices. But it won't work with OS 5.0 devices. Is this any clearer?

No, in order to work in OS 5.0, you need to use the SDK for 5.0 or earlier.
For example, to work in OS 6.0, you can use the SDK for 5.0 or the SDK for 6.0. You can use the SDK for OS 5.0 because the SDKs are forward compatible to a later (higher number) OS versions. But SDK 7.1 is not backward compatible with the earlier (lower number) OS levels.
