I intend to write a simple client that will reside on a symbian series 60 phone and will communicate with a server program residing on some webserver. The server side program will listen for connections on a given port and will talk to my client.The Server side program may be written in either Perl or Java or any other language.
The program would work as follows :
I send a message which is nothing but a simple string from my series 60 phone to the server program who then redirects the string to another Symbian series 60 phone.
In other words I intend to develop an instant messaging app. Is it possible to acheive this functionality and if yes then Id appreciate some tips or sample code to get me started. Ive already gone through the socket and HTTP examples that are part of the SDK. What Im stuck on is how will I make my client written in Symbian C++ talk to a special program residing on a webserver ?. The SDK I use is SDK v2.1 and use Borland C++ BuilderX as my IDE.
Thanks a lot
