Download different JDE versions ftrom Blackberry site ...
You need to register first.
JDE 4.5 (for 8100, 8300, 8800 etc series) -- along with this you will get these simulators.
JDE 4.6 (for Bold, Javelin, Pearl Flip) you need to download Javelin and PearlFlip simulators seperately.
JDE 4.7 (for Storm, Tour) you need to download Tour simulator seperately.
Build your application in these JDE's seperately and run using simulators.
If it works then fine (But note all functionality will not works in simulators.) It will just give you an idea that How it works.

No need to set anything in the classpath.
If you're using windows, just go to start->programs->Research in motion->look for the jde/simulator you would use
if you would just want to test your app on Various OS then download the different JDE:
but if you want to test your app on various devices (to see how it would look like on different screens), then download various smartphone simulators, still at the same site above. To load the application into the simulator, open the smartphone simulator->click file->load java program->look for .cod of application.

each jde also contains different simulators, you can change the one you are using on the preferences.
you can also launch any independent simulator and select "connect to simulator" on the jde to attach the debugger.

As long as you install the simulator to C:\Program Files\Research in Motion, they will automatically appear in the JDE.
Eclipse: In the toolbar, you'll see hte debug icon. Click the arrow next to it and select Debug Configuration... Click Simulator and choose the Device you want from the Drop-down menu.
Note: Non-default Debug settings do not persist in Eclipse. The Sim of your choice will, but setting specific debug options, such as /clear-nvram, will be reset when the session ends.
BlackBerry JDE: Edit -> Preferences -> Simulator. Select the desired Simulator from the drop-down menu.
Hope that helps,
