documentation is terrible

Trying to learn how to make a simple app for the BB, and the pdf file has so many errors (wrong instructions, missing steps) that it's making it impossible to make any meaningful progress.


Good job!

Re: documentation is terrible

You read documentation? LOL.

Personally I haven't found any problems but I have to confess to not reading it in much detail.

If you go to sun.com they have plenty of good java and j2me tutorials and discussions. Understanding the

RIM stuff is mostly easy after that. Sure, it can take a while to learn the specific implementation issues

and there are bugs etc but from what I've seen of the manuals they are fine.


The problems are largely things that are undocumented realities- bugs or carrier policies, etc.

Re: documentation is terrible

What document are you referring to?  What errors are you seeing?
