Hello,

I'm a newbie in blackberry application development. Trying to create HelloWorld app. I downloaded BlackBerry Java Plug-in 1.3.0
and created these two Java classes (code below the line).

I notice the simulator runs so slow. It also seems hang from time to time. Why is this ?
For example when I click the blackberry icon it supposed to bring up a menu. But it seems extremely slow. Can someone please advise ?
The simulator that comes with the installation is Blackberry 9800 simulator.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

How does your computer compare to the minimum specs for the simulator? Emulating another computer running other software is a fairly expensive operation computationally, and you need a decent machine to work with.

Welcome to BB.

Simulators always try to replicate real device.


True it is slow , but think it is natural! yes it is!

Do not look for quick development processes like in Android or iPhone in BB.

There is no problem in your simulator. Your RAM Capacity should be 4GB then only you can get speed in simulator.
