I have developed a Java midlet application in Blackberry plug in for Eclipse 3.6.0 and it runs in Blackberry 9800 simulator. However the icon that appears in the simulator is a BB default icon but not the icon I included in the res img file. I have tried with several sizes of icon such as 80x80, 68x68, 48x36. but my icon still does not appear in the simulator.
I would appreciate advice from you all on how to correct the situation.

Welcome to the forum.
In your BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file, on the Application tab, you will see an "Application Icons" section. Simply select "Add" then navigate to your icon and select "OK" then run your app again.

width-480 app icon size 80X80 .png
width-360 app icon size 53X53.png
width-320 app icon size 32X32.png
this is the advisable size for app icon please use this same size
step to add the app icon in plugin with eclips
1) took 2 images of the same size and just change the name (image.png and image_rollover.png) and keep it in to res folder
2) open App discriptor.xml add both images checked on roll over image
3) save it and clean the simulator and run it.

Thanks for your advice. I have tried as you advise, but the icon still does not appear in the simulator. However I will go ahead submitting the application and see if it pass the acceptance by BB.
