Customizing a BlackBerry Simulator

by on ‎04-15-2010 05:27 AM

Using a simulator is one of the easiest and most effective ways of demonstrating SalesLogix Mobile.  One added feature that many people overlook is that these simulators can be 100% self contained, meaning you can zip them up and run them on a Windows machine that has never had SalesLogix installed on it. Of course is still available to do an Over The Air (OTA) download of the SalesLogix Mobile demo software onto a real BlackBerry device, but working with simulators can be a nice alternative especially if you want to customize SalesLogix Mobile or if you need to show SalesLogix Mobile working on an online meeting.

Steps to building a self contained customized SalesLogix Mobile Simulator

  • The only prerequisite is that you have installed and configured SalesLogix Mobile.
  • Install SalesLogix Mobile onto your simulator of choice
    •  Research In Motion provides a number of simulators if you want something other than one of the simulators provided by default during the install process.
  • Synchronize the data and, if applicable, any customizations you have made.
  • Test to make sure simulator is working properly.
  • Make a backup of the entire folder the simulator is running in (Ex. C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators 4.6.0\ (9000) )


You are done.  The folder that contains the simulator is now your customized self contained simulator.


Note  - I have found that everything runs fine if you remove the Debug and Java folders from the backup of your self contained simulator
