Nokia is happy to announce the release of the Nokia 6131 NFC SDK version 1.0.
The Nokia 6131 NFC SDK allows developers to create and emulate Java™ applications (MIDlets) for the Nokia 6131 NFC mobile phone. The SDK includes the Contactless Communication API (JSR-257), which enables the use of the near Field Communication (NFC) features of the Nokia 6131 NFC phone. In addition to the standard JSR-257 API, the SDK includes Nokia NFC-specific interfaces and classes. The Nokia 6131 NFC SDK contains a Nokia 6131 NFC phone emulator, Java APIs, sample MIDlets, and documentation.

Developers can use one of a number of popular integrated development environments (IDEs) to create, compile, and package applications. The behavior of those applications can then be tested in an emulator, directly from the IDE. The SDK can also be used as a standalone kit from the command line. The emulator offers MIDP 2.0 support, security domain emulation, Bluetooth emulation and also provides support for the Unified Emulator Interface (UEI). The SDK installation package includes a plug-in that enables the SDK to be used in conjunction with the Eclipse IDE, as well as Nokia Connectivity Framework (NCF) Lite, which offers a fast and easy-to-use communication environment for emulators.
The Nokia 6131 NFC SDK can be downloaded from here.
Before installing the SDK, it is recommended that you read the Installation Guide, available here.
