blackberry dev with eclipse on mac?

I was really excited to see that there was a blackberry plugin for eclipse until I went to download it and found that it was a exe...

 

This is java. Why is the plugin an exe? Isn't this supposed to be platform independant?

 

Any chance of getting the source code for the plugin for eclipse posted so that I can compile it for my (intel) macbook pro?

 

thanks

Re: blackberry dev with eclipse on mac?

If you'll install Windows on your Intel based Mac - it will be possible to develop bb apps on this computer.

 

Otherwise - there is no way, as far as I know.

 

Except of eclipse and plugin - you have to have JDE installed.

 

JDE exists only for Windows operating system.
