OK - I'm starting to get amazingly confused here:

Do I need visual Studio .NET or will standard Visual C++ do?

What SDKs do I need - there seems to be a billion and one...

Do I really have to splash 500 for CodeWarrior - I'm just one home user looking to play around with programming, I'm not a massive developer.

If someone could do a list of what's needed (try to avoid acronyms if possible)...

Can't avoid acronyms entirely, but here's a "decision tree" for Nokia phones:

Do you want to develop apps using the Java or C++ programming languages: pick Java (MIDP) SDK or C++ SDK

What development environment (IDE, Integrated Development Environment) you intend use: SDK for CodeWarrior or SDK for Borland or SDK for Microsoft.

What phone do you want to target: Determines version of Series 60, Series 80 or 7710 SDK.

You don't have to use an IDE (and live with just command line tools), but then you can't use the emulator and have to do all your trials and testing on an actual device.


SDK = Software Development Kit

MIDP = Mobile Information Device Profile (defines a subset of Java support), part of the J2SE (Java 2 Micro Edition) specifications.

Ok that's cleared up most of my questions -

Visual C++ 6 is my weapon of choice.

The device is my shiny new Sendo X and other Series 60's.

I assume that I'll need the Microsoft SDK in that case.

The book you recommend - does it take things right from the beginning (i.e. Hello, world-type programs to start with)?

Pretty much. It assumes you know C++ to some degree, though.

And if you want to use your Sendo X, then the SDK version is 1.2 (Series 60 1.2 or "Series 60 1st Edition") and for MIDP Java it'd be an SDK for MIDP 1.0.

Azu - Are you following the Developing Series 60 Apps book by Nokia? If you are, make sure you download the code examples from the Nokia forum, otherwise your apps won't work.

BigEddie - You're writing Series 90 apps? Wow, and I thought Series 60 was tough. The problem is that Series 90 is still relatively new and most of the developers using it are very high level. It may be easier to get a cheap Series 60 phone and write for that. The book N/A recommends (the one I mentioned above) is pretty good but you'll hit a roadblock quite early on (as I have) if you don't have very, very good c++ knowledge. I would therefore very strongly recommend a friendly C++ book to get started with as well. Rumour had it that there was a C++ walkthrough guide being planned for AAS (which would be ideal for newbies like you and me) but I don't know what's happened with it.

Masamune: Thanks for the book, will have a look. in terms of which platform is that i have a 7710 and 7600 hence i have choices! reason been i wanna attack 7710 is bcos its new, so what about J2ME then? do you think it will be a little bit easier? and will my Delphi experiences help at all? ?

howto code from scratch Symbian C++

Hello Guys,

I am new to Symbian C++ programming and I am trying to find a tutorial to actually demonstrate how to code from scratch. I am able to build all of the examples that come with the Symbian_v6_0_C_PLUS_Nokia_9200_Series_SDK_1_2, but I am trying to write my own apps. I am familiar with J2ME, but I need to see where to place header files and dependencies etc... Thank you ahead of time. Urgent!!!

Compiler differences

Hi,

I'm new to the Symbian platform (although I've been writing C since 1982). I just upgraded my mobile from a Motorola T190 to a Nokia 3230 so I'm looking at Series 60.

According to Nokia I can use Visual Studio, CodeWarrior, and Borland C++ Mobile Edition. (I have VS .Net already. I also have C++ Builder 5 and CodeWarrior on the Mac, too.)

Nokia's "Series 60 Developer Platform 1.0/2.0: Choosing An IDE" pdf file (Series_60_Developer_Platform_Choosing_An_IDE_v1_0 _2_0_en.pdf) is dated April 2004. That's a long time ago. That was before Nokia purchased the Symbian compiler from Metrowerks. Is all the information in it still applicable?

What are the current advantages and disadvantages between the three IDEs?

Thanks,
David

Probably best to buy or borrow this book to start with: http://forum.nokia.com/main/1,6566,40_2,00.html
