OSX Mavericks...

Hi all,


I want to try my hand at writing a simple timer app for my BB Bold 9900 (OS 7.1)


I'm running Mavericks on a MacBook Air but when I download the 'Eclipse with Java SDK for BB' file from:




my computer starts downloading/installing a Java 6 update through Apple's Software Update program.  Once complete, the download/installer window disappears & nothing happens.  I tried double clicking the Eclipse with Java SDK for BB icon in my downloads folder again but now it doesn't even display the Java downloader...


Any ideas?

Re: OSX Mavericks...

Hi there, did you ever figure this out? I've been working on a Blackberry 7 app myself and sadly my Windows machine died just last week. I've been trying to get everything setup on OSX Mavericks, but ran into the same issues you were experiencing.
