Introduction

You can add the features of the Nokia IDE for Java to a copy of the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. Please note that the Mobile Java Tools (MJT) features should not be installed, their presence will prevent the installation of the Nokia IDE for Java ME plug-in.

Once installed, you will have access to the NokiaDevEnv perspective and the Nokia IDE tools. However, the Nokia specific welcome screen is not included in the installation.

Process

  • The Nokia IDE for Java ME plug-in is now installed.
  • When prompted to restart Eclipse, click Restart Now.
  • When Eclipse has restarted, on the Window menu point to Open perspective and click Other.
  • In the Open perspective dialogue select NokiaDevEnv and click OK.

Using the Nokia IDE for Java ME features

With the plug-in installed and the NokiaDevEnv perspective open you can use the tools of the Nokia IDE for Java ME in exactly the same way you would in a standalone installation of the IDE. For a quick guide to the features of the IDE, view the Introduction to Nokia IDE for Java ME video (remembering that you don't have the Nokia welcome screen) or visit the Getting Started with Nokia IDE for Java ME section of the Nokia Developer website.
