Supported project types in the IDE
The QNX IDE supports these project types:
- BlackBerry project
Since the IDE doesn't know what's being built, it would have problems parsing source files (which it does internally to allow navigation, code completion, syntax highlighting, code generation, and refactoring). Therefore, if you use a Makefile project, you have to modify the Indexer (the internal parser) to point it to the Includes, as well as what Defines your parser uses for conditional compilation. The process of determining this is called Discovery, and it can be controlled using Discovery Options.
The problem associated with this project type is its inability to perform a build of the project from command line (although, it's possible in simple cases with some additional setup files). In addition, there are restrictions on what you build and how, particularly if you use special steps in the build that involves other tools.
BlackBerry 10 OS project
A project type that lets you create applications for the BlackBerry 10 OS. You can configure a BlackBerry 10 OS project to build for the simulator or for a device. If you want to use a device, you need to configure it for development.
