I must be doing something wrong.
I have to run clean.bat after every single run of the simulator. I get messages that the debug file is missing for my projects.
I run debug. Find an error. Exit simulator or stop debug since I cannot change code when the debugger is running. Change code. Run "Build all". Start debugger and I get the message. If I try to run anyway it seems that my updated module is not available to load into the simulator. This is VERY frustrating. clean.bat takes several minutes and I cant take a coffe break everytime it runs.
its a popup window saying "cannot find file" "Driver.debug"

just ignore these kind of error.

I am not 100% sure but.
I do a build all, start debug, get the messages about missing debug files, load the .cod files into the simulator and run. I do not get the latest version of my built modules. I do a clean.bat and I do get the latest version. I have also seen postings complaining about not getting the latest compiled version and they have been recommended to do a clean.bat
So I cannot ignore.

Either I am doing something wrong or there is a bug.
Everytime I recompile my project I have to either run clean.bat (and that takes many minutes!!!) or do this procedure:
2. start debug
3. load module in simulator
4. Reset simulator
5. quit simulator
6. Start debug again
7. load module
8. Go to download in simulator
9. Start module from there
It sure is awkward but it is a lot faster than clean.bat.
If I do not follow one of these 2 procedures I will not get the updated module

at least in my jde the file is automatically loaded by the simulator (if i use one connected to the jde)

Not clear what your reply implies. Does it mean you have to go through the same stupid routine
except for the loading of the module?

in my case i dont have to run clean.bat at all to run an updated version of my application.It gets updated automatically. To remove .debug warning in the dialog box you can say "dont ask this again" option
I would suggest to check if your COD file is getting really updated by going to the simulator directoryand checking the last compile time. You can also remove .dmp files of your simulator instead of clean.bat. If problem still persists may be you can try reinstalling your simulator.

The only place where the .cod file exists is in the package thread so it is updated for sure. I start the
Simulator by hitting debug from the jde. I load the .cod files from package thread. What seems to happen is that
the Download folder on the simulator does not get the updated module unless I do a reset and exit of the simulator
and click debug on the jde again.

Is your project active? Active projects should be copied to the simulator directory. Are you using the BlackBerry JDE or BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse? What JDE version are you using? Are you using a simulator that was bundled with the development tool or installed separately?

Why? I start the debugger from the jde after I have made changes to the code. Is that documented somewhere? It does not seem like a logical step since the loading of the module into the simulator is done from where the jde has placed the

I have reduced my procedure to the following
run a clean.bat at the start of the day or if there is something else that I think makes it neccessary
start debug run simulator test from "download"
start debug run simulator
load new module in simulator (Maybe not needed)
start debug run simulator
run from download
The message about not finding the debug file I have set to ignore.
If I do not do the intermediate step of resetting the simulator I do not get the latest module to "download"
