Newbie Question: Multiple SDK's & Plugins per Eclipse Installation?

Hi ,

 

Please excuse if this is a stupid question, but I'm new at BB development.

Can I have more than one SDK & Plug-In version installed in one Eclipse install?  I understand that the latest SDK requires the latest Eclipse version, but if I want to develop for features in BB 5.0, 4.7,4.5, etc, do I need a different IDE install for each SDK/Plugin version or can they co-exist?

 

Thanks for your replies,

 

Jose

You can have all of those active in one Eclipse install.

Re: Newbie Question: Multiple SDK's & Plugins per Eclipse Installation?

hi there, 

 

        You can develop bb applications from 6.0, 5.0,4.7,4.6 and 4.5 using BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse. 

 

       Inorder get the BB Java plug in, use the below link and download the latest plug in( ver 1.3).

 

                                     http://us.blackberry.com/developers/javaappdev/javaplugin.jsp

 

    By default, you can develop app for 6.0, For earlier versions you need to download the SDKs, in this precedure,

 

       Open Eclipse IDE< Help<Install New Software<Add Site

 

                       http://www.blackberry.com/go/eclipseUpdate/3.6/java

 

 Add the above site and name it as "Blackberry sdk update".

 

and select all the SDKs and download.

 

 

If you think this information is helpful, give kudos
