So... I started playing with doing some blackberry development. I'm not entirely sure what I will do with it but it's sort of cool in a way.
But I am finding some painful things. Like the simulator is buggy as all get out, at least on my platform (Vista 64 bit). I have to end task to kill it for one thing and the reloading of apps is at best flaky so I end up having to kill it quite often because it locks up.
And the documentation is not great. There is documentation. And there are tutorials but while it is Java it's a whole new world when it comes to UI and the behaviour with that is not well documented. It seems to be "Swing-ish" in some respects but there are some behaviours I don't understand. My current problem is that I have a "window" (screen) I push a screen on top but when I pop that screen the main menu appears on the first window. Why? I don't know. But I wish it would stop. :/
