ATTENTION: at the moment there’s no PlugIn through Update Site available 😦
see below…. hopefully RIM will change this soon because it causes much more work always to download the full installer and re-configure your Eclipse Installation
Got to Eclipse Downloads at http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ … and select Eclipse Helios SR1 Packages (v 3.6.1)
Then we have to select “Eclipse IDE for Java Developers“:
please download the Windows 32-bit version even if you’r working on Windows 7 – 64 !
Doubleclick the Installer and install Eclipse at your preferred location. I always choose a short path near Root without spaces.
Open Eclipse and create a new Workspace at your preferred location.
Now we have to add the UpdateSite: please open Preferences | Install/Update | Available Software Sites
…and add a new Site:
Now we can go to Help | Install New Software… :
then select the RIM UpdateSite …
———- the following inly worked with the previous version 1.1 and Eclipse 3.5
———- currently only the full Installer is working for 1.3
…and you should get a selection of BlackBerry SDKs and the BlackBerry Java Plug-in to be installed.
Check what you need:
- the BlackBerry Java Plug-in
- 1 … n BlackBerry Java SDK
I only checked SDK 188.8.131.52 because I started Development with 5.0 and have delayed 6.0 development until german providers will support it.
Then hit Next to Install the PlugIn.
…uuups… Login required ?
BlackBerry is a secure platform and you’ll always be remembered that Security has high priority.
If you ask where to get the Username and Password – you have to register as Blackberry Developer
please enter this Username and Password and check “Save password“. The you’ll be asked for Questions and Answers if you will lost passwords:
if all went well the Installation process will be processed as usual.
Then you should restart Eclipse:
Congratulations: Eclipse Plug-in for BlackBerry Java development is successfully installed.
