Netbeans 6.5 Mobility Flow Designer

Does anyone have experience with Netbeans 6.5 Mobility Flow Designer?

I am trying to use it at this moment. The problems I am encountering are:

If I add for example a TableItem my generated application does not compile anymore. I would expect that if I would add something with the Designer, at least the generated application should stay working, or at least compiling.

If I look at the error it's in grayed source text. Grayed means, generated and read only. Hence I cannot change it. But I can see no real hint on what I should do in the Designer to correct it.

If I delete the Item I have just added, it still does not build. That is the most frustrating! I make copies every time I try to add something. If it does not work, I delete the present project and use a back up, copy that to the old present project name. It gives for example:

Error preverifying class org.netbeans.microedition.lcdui.TableItem java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: javax/microedition/lcdui/CustomItem.

But I have just deleted that Table!

Is may-be version 6.1 less challanging?

If you could help me, in the Flow Designer I have a completely empty form. I add a Table Item, I define a Table Model, and it stops compiling with the message below and I have no idea what to do. I am presently trying version 6.1 but it is not getting better. Strange thing is, if I do a completely empty project with one form, it then suddenly does work.

Suddenly not experiencing any problems anymore. I think a latest update fixed it.

I agree. Here's the link:
