mac eclipse

Yesterday, RIM released a Java plug-in for Eclipse for Mac OS X enabling developers to develop Java apps for the BlackBerry on a Mac. BlackBerry Java development on the Macintosh has been absent and developers have been asking for a solution for a long time.

The initial beta will focus on Java development for BlackBerry 6 with a tethered device debugging on the BlackBerry Torch: no simulator required.

Eclipse is a free java-based open source software development environment mostly based on plug-ins. With the exception of a small run-time kernel, all of Eclipse’s functionality relies on plug-ins.

It also supports Eclipse project artifacts and folder structures.

The sync is performed wirelessly (OTA) and there is a free version that provides much of the same functionality except in the free version, sync is manual and in the premium version it’s automatic. Currently, only Outlook 2007 is supported, but you get automatic updates, reset synchronization and more.
