simulator issues

I see that everybody here has simulator issues (takes forever to load)

How do you test your code? small fixes ,debugging, unit tests and etc.

is there anything like me4se or microemulator for BB?

 

thanks,

Guy

Re: simulator issues

This blog is the best information I have seen relating to to speeding up the Simulator start up.

I am not aware of any other debugging option.

 

Clearly a faster PC helps too!

Re: simulator issues

I using macbook with xp running on vmware.

the vm has 2GB of RAM

 

If the emulator is such a painful issue how come there is no platform that allows us to run our app as regular java application (j2se)?

this could make our lives much easier
