Which BlackBerry JDE version to use

I got this from the blackberry site:

  • If the application does not need to use specific BlackBerry device hardware features or newly released API extensions, use BlackBerry JDE version 4.0 to develop the application.
  • If the application is designed to run only on the BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8100 smartphone, use BlackBerry JDEversion 4.2 or later.
What I need to know is which blackberry device uses which JDE version.
For example to develop an application for blackberry perl 8110 one should use BlackBerry Java Development Environment v4.0 and no further.
If I use JDE version 5 what phones will that application run on.
Thanks

Re: Which BlackBerry JDE version to use

just saw this article in BlackBerry OS wiki. The OS version in table is also your JDE version:

Re: Which BlackBerry JDE version to use

we use 4.2.1 as a base usually. especially in a corporate environment users are not prone to upgrade to the latest possible OS.

 

most devices at least support 4.5.

you need a separate 4.7 build for storm1/2 phones for your app not running in compatibility mode
