Incredible apps for BlackBerry coming with JDE 5.0 beta

View Comments

The BlackBerry Java Development Environment (JDE) is now in version 5.0 beta. With OS 5.0 on the way, and many new features being opened up to developers, we can expect a surge in interesting new applications. For example, with OS 5.0, I’ve heard that the video API’s will be opened up to developers, allowing apps to use the video camera. Think about all the fun applications you can use with access to video.

The BlackBerry Java Development Environment provides developers with:

  • New APIs and enhanced capabilities
  • Simplified wireless connectivity to the Internet or corporate intranets
  • Easy to customize user interfaces
  • Client-side logic
  • Support for push content
  • Local integration with email, Personal Information Management (PIM), multimedia and BlackBerry
  • Location-based services

The latest version of JDE will:

  • Increase productivity
  • Simplify application development
  • Provide end-to-end tools and enhanced Java APIs
  • Communicate with most programming languages, protocols and data formats

BlackBerry JDE 4.7 is now live!

View Comments

God bless the Developer Support team at RIM; it’s Christmas Eve Eve and they’re still hard at work pumping out important tools for the BlackBerry development community. Last night the BlackBerry JDE 4.7 left beta and went live, and boy is it jam packed with features. Beyond updated device simulators and the full API set for the BlackBerry Storm, there’s new stuff like the ‘Set Theme Wallpaper’ feature, which provides the ability for an application to set the homescreen wallpaper.

You can see the full feature list after the jump, and download JDE 4.7 at the link below.

RIM has now officially released the BlackBerry JDE 4.6.1 on their handy developer site. One would assume that it includes support for the BlackBerry Curve 8900, which runs OS 4.6.1, but if anyone notices new additions, post about it in the comments. RIM considers this a ‘premium resource’, so you’ll have to log in to download. Click the link below and you’re well on your way!

The BlackBerry 4.7 JDE beta that saw release in early October has received an update. The beta update includes device simulators much closer to the final Vodafone and Verizon BlackBerry Storm builds, as well as the final accelerometer APIs. Developers should expect the final JDE release in the coming weeks.

UPDATE: In my rush to get this up last night, I forgot to tell you that RIM has started releasing device simulators separate from the JDE again. You can find the OS 4.7 and 7.6 device simulators at the link below:

Our good friend SingStar just tipped us off to the fact that the BlackBerry OS 4.7 JDE and simulator are now available! Hit the link below!

My Man SingStar wanted me to point out that the 4.7 JDE features a really slick accelerometer API, so I’m hoping to see some BlackBerry software that rivals anything the iPhone 3G has done!

BlackBerry JDE 4.6 beta released

View Comments

BlackBerry LogoWhile the last of the OS 4.5 suite is still in the process of getting outed, a beta version of the BlackBerry Java Desktop Environment for 4.6 is available. New features include being able to integrate with the Messages app, SVG support, additional BlackBerry maps APIs and more. The BlackBerry Bold is coming very soon, and those developers who aren’t RIM partners have probably been in the dark for some time now. It really wasn’t long ago at all that the 4.5 BlackBerry JDE was released, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see some developers going right from 4.3 to 4.6. Hopefully with the latest JDE available, we won’t have to worry about too many of our apps borking out after an OS upgrade…

BlackBerry JDE 4.5 goes public

BlackBerry LogoBasement devs, start your engines. If you aren’t one of those companies that are super-cozy with RIM and getting the Java Desktop Environement well in advance, it’s now available for open download. HTML e-mail viewing, spell check and BlackBerry Maps integration are all a part of the new package. Maps opens up some options… Since Google opened up its maps API, a lot have companies have been able to do some great stuff with it. I’ve always been a fan of BlackBerry Maps, and think there are some similar opportunities there.

OS 4.3 helps wipe your BlackBerry clean

View Comments

Mr. CleanJibi has scoped out a new feature in OS 4.3 which allows for a clean wipe of your BlackBerry back to factory settings. Handy, simple, and most of all, it resets all of your BES security restrictions. Given, all those IT policies get reinstated once you hook up to your BES again, the new JavaLoader command does make reselling a lot easier. Presuming you have the Java Desktop Environment installed, all you have to do is pull it up in your command prompt and type in “javaloader -u resettofactory”. Easy as pie.

BlackBerry JDE 4.3 available for download

BBLogoWe’ve got some good news for the devs out there. We’ve received word that the BlackBerry Desktop Environment v.4.3 is now available for download, complete with Vista compatibility. With the JDE out, we can now keep our eyes good and peeled for a 4.3 Desktop Manager, or better yet an OS upgrade. Of course, we gotta give developers a bit of a head start to pump out the software we love so very, very much. You can check out some of the new features in the documentation.
