OS version compatibility


I recently started developing BB apps using JDE4.5, but would later like to add support for touch screen using JDE5.0. As per my current design, the project being built using 4.5 will act as a Master while the one using 5.0 will extend and override the methods defined in 4.5 as and when needed. I read that 5.0 supports opengl while 4.5 doesn't. Is there a way I can still use this approach of 'extending' my old project and use opengles specific functionalities for 5.0 alone? Has anyone ever designed projects that will support both these jde versions?

Any response is appreciated.

Re: OS version compatibility

take a look at preprocessing, it allows using a single codebase for multiple builds.
