Re: Preprocessing is not working in blackberry eclipse plugin of Version:

Adding to above,

What I have found in java plugin Version:
1. Class which is having compilation error due JDE incompatibility does not get preprocessed (i.e. complication error still remains)
2 Class which is compatible across all JDE is not having above issue.

So my question is whether JDE specific pre-processing is no longer available in version above 1.3

If so kindly suggest a workaround.
