Environment: 32-bit Windows 7, most recent Java development environment from Sun, Visual Studio 8 most recent BlackBerry Beta Plug-in, 9700 Simulator working fine, whitelisted remote .NET/ASP/SQL Server 2008 to use as remote formatted page server, XMLHTTP requests, and possibly direct .asp service calls.
I also spent about a day and 1/2 trying to download an Eclipse environment with no success. I tried multiple builds from the site referring to the documentation on the BB site and various posts and I couldn't get the dependencies to the point where I could get the plug-in to install because of dependency issues.
I have the impression that most applications that are built and are running and being sold are actually full java environment applications using Eclipse or the old environment.
So I have three questions:
1) should I consider backing up to the 1.1 Visual Studio plug-in so that I can debug? What will I lose?
2) should I just make the leap to the full java development environment?
3) Are there any successful commercial web plug-in products in the app world that I could look at to know what is possible. My favorite application so far is the Bloomberg application. My impression is that it was built in the Java development environment. That is the type of application I am trying to make only with more functionality.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Are you using the tooling for building web pages or widgets? If you are creating widgets you will need the version 2.0.
Debugging support is coming for the 2.0 Web Plug-in near the end of this month (March)
