Nokia is pleased to announce the new release of the Nokia 6131 NFC SDK, version 1.1.
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 additional extensions for several tag technologies, P2P connection and branding configuration. The Nokia 6131 NFC SDK contains a Nokia 6131 NFC phone emulator, Java APIs, example MIDlets, and documentation.
Developers can use one of a number of popular integrated development environments (IDEs) to create, compile, and package MIDlets. The behavior of these MIDlets can be then tested in the emulator, directly from the IDE. The emulator can also be used as a stand-alone program using the MIDlet launcher or from the command line.
The Nokia 6131 NFC emulator provides the simulation of NFC tags and Java Smart Card. External card readers can be also utilized together with the emulator, for example to test the MIDlet reading and writing into real NFC tags, or communicating with Java Smart Card placed on the external reader.
New features in Nokia 6131 NFC SDK 1.1:
- Branding Configuration API support added
- Web Services (JAXP) API 1.0 (JSR-172) implementation
- New example MIDlet for P2P
- New example MIDlet for Branding Configuration
- New example MIDlet for Mifare Standard API
- New example MIDlet for demonstrating the usage of Nokia 6131 NFC internal secure element placed on an external reader
- Users Guide: Added Chapter 5, "Managing the applets on the secure element of Nokia 6131 NFC"
- Mifare Standard API: Mifare 1K and 4K tags can be accessed using the Mifare Standard API.
- Support for Nokia 6131 NFC in external reader.
NOTE: Mifare Standard API is fully compatible with the implementation in Nokia 6131 NFC mobile phone software version 5.10. There may be incompabilities with older phone software versions.
