Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how to build a basic web page application for the BlackBerry using the web development plugin in Eclipse? Every link on the BlackBerry website that I have tried either leads to a missing file or broken link. And, Google does not list any results in my searches for web application development, just Java development.
I have downloaded the Eclipse + BlackBerry bundle, and it is installed. I've even tried creating a new "Static Web Project" in Eclipse. But, when I attempt to run the project using "Run As...BlackBerry Web", nothing happens. I have no "BlackBerry" menu in Eclipse; nor, do I have any "New Project" settings for BlackBerry.
Thanks for any help...

To help us diagnose what may be going wrong can you list the following:
- Which version of the Eclipse Web Plug-in are you using?
- Did you install via the Update site or the full installer?
- What version of Windows are you running (XP, Vista, Win7) and is it 32 or 64 bit?
- Which version of Eclipse are you using?
This should help us get going in the right direction.

I'm running Windows XP 32-bit, and the full installer version of Eclipse/web plugin are what is on the BlackBerry website at: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbetasof
By the way, the link is incorrect when trying to access the web development site at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/ . I would consider that the "gateway" to development, and both links point to widget development. Also, the tutorial PDF links at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/resources/
I don't have any issues running Eclipse. I just have no "New Project" that is designated as a BlackBerry web project. The only option I could find was "Run As...BlackBerry Web Application" (or something similar). And, that did absolutely nothing.

One of our engineers thinks it could be a runtime issue. Can you please perform the following tasks:
1) start eclipse
2) in the main menu, click Help->About Eclipse menu
3) In the About dialog, click the "Configuration Details" button
4) copy the entire content in Configuration Details dialog and post it up so we can take a look

I cannot post the entire configuration, due to limitations of this forums (20,000 character limit in a post). If there is something specific I can post to help in debugging the issue, I'd be happy to. Just let me know which section(s) to post.
