Simulator configuration with Eclipse

Hi -


I am using JDE 4.5 version with the Eclipse editor. When I launch the simulator, the 8300 simulator

fires up and I see my app.


How do I configure so that a different simulator gets launched? I tried looking at a few options, but

it was not apparent. I did not see any documentation on this, but I might have missed the right one.


If someone has seen this, please point me in the right direction.


There are .bat files under simulators directory. Launching them displays the right simulator, so I need

to find how Eclipse knows which simulator to launch.

Re: Simulator configuration with Eclipse

To view the documentation on this, click on the Help menu of Eclipse and choose Help Contents.  Then expand "BlackBerry JDE Plug-in for Eclipse Guide", expand "Configuring the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator" and then click on "Specify a BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator for a specific BlackBerry smartphone type".
