Calling all Java® developers: We have some news regarding the BlackBerry® Java® Plug-in for Eclipse™!
We are pleased to announce a new Open Source project for the BlackBerry development platform. While we have stopped SDK work on BlackBerry® 7 OS, we’ve decided to make the source code open for all those developers using the Java Plug-in for Eclipse. The BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse is now available as a repository provided under the Eclipse Public Licenses 1.0. The BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse lets you develop, test, and debug BlackBerry Java applications using the Eclipse IDE, in combination with the BlackBerry SDK appropriate for the BlackBerry OS your application is targeting.
The readme file on the project page details all the information you will need to build the source code for Windows or Mac, build your own update site for the plug-in or even build your own full installer. For all the details, jump to the project page.
Additionally, the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse 2.0 is now available for download as a complete install for Windows and Mac, or as an update via our Eclipse update sites. For more BlackBerry Java related information, tool downloads, sample apps and documentations, please visit our Java development page — and make sure to fork us on Github!
