As listed on the FAQ, I installed the BB plugin for Mac from
I used the update site option. I can see the net.rim.ejde.componentpack5.0.0_5.0.0.25 under plugins as well as the features directory.
When I restarted eclipse, I don't see anything remotely BB related (menu bar, perspective, bb project etc)
I tried this on Helios Pulsar as well as Helios Classic
I am using Snow Leopard 10.6.6 and got the latest updated version of the JDK

Did anyone manage to get the BB eclipse plugin working on a Mac?
