    BlackBerry JDE 5.0 Beta 4 released!



    5.0 is inching its way closer and closer. RIM has pushed out another beta of its 5.0 Java Development Environment. The new beta should help developers get their apps running even better on 5.0. With the recent release of the Storm 9500 5.0 Device Simulator, it seems RIM is getting app developers all the tools they need to hammer out high quality apps. So if your a developer, get this downloaded and make us some killer apps for our beloved berries!


    Droooooiiiiiid!

    I am beginning to think the homescreen icon issue is a bug in 5.0 for the Storm. I noticed that if you send a BBM5 contact to the homescreen, it doesn't show the new message notification on the icon. It does if you click over to the app screen though. Now why would RIM put out BBM5 and not have it compatible with the 5.0 OS homescreen? Also, I have read that this doesn't affect the Tour and the 9500. So I'm betting it's more of a OS issue. I guess we will find out when 288 is leaked.

    Nate, I just recently read a whole explanation from meterberry developer and he says that it's the 5.0 jde that had an API limitation....let me post his quote here....hold on....

    Alright:

    - A beta of the 5.0 API was released by RIM. However, the current 5.0 leaks do not behave consistent with this API due to OS bugs. Not all things behave as documented.

    - A 5.0 simulator for the Storm has not been released, forcing developers to fly blind when troubleshooting.

    The following MeterBerry features do not work due to OS bugs and will not work until RIM fixes them:

    1. The ability to change notification alerts (sounds, vibrate, etc.)

    A bug in the Notifications API prevents third party applications from installing notification handlers. This is what causes the exception when MeterBerry first starts on 5.0.

    2. Scheduled resets

    A bug in the Input Simulation API prevents this from working.

    3. Update of the home screen icon text

    A bug in the HomeScreen API prevents the icon text from changing until an icon is moved to a different folder and then back again. So, for example, if you set your MeterBerry icon to rotate between Battery, Temperature, and Memory, the icon itself will change, but the text below it will be stuck on battery level.

    5.0 is a leaked, beta, unofficial OS with very significant API changes. It is one thing to support 4.7 leaks because the API is the same, but 5.0 is much different. It is a lot of work to develop workarounds to OS bugs, especially without a simulator.

    We have MeterBerry working on 5.0 with the above exceptions. I really don't want to release a stripped down version for a leaked OS that will likely change again in a week and break something else, but I'll consider it.
