    Question Begin Symbian C++, some questions

    Hello all,

    Right now, I'm programming mobile applications on J2ME platform,
    and I would like to move into Symbian C++ world.
    Before I do that, I have some questions for uncleared issues:
    Thanks for the helpers!

    1. Since some S60 phones can't Minimize java apllication for background running,
    I'm looking for a platform which can do that, Can apps in Sym' C++ perform minimze? and run at the background?

    2. What kind of file does Symbian C++ compiler creates after compiling? Does it works directly on the S60 phones?

    Thanks!

    Lior.

    Hi

    1. Since some S60 phones can't Minimize java apllication for background running,

    yes u can do this.


    2. What kind of file does Symbian C++ compiler creates after compiling? Does it works directly on the S60 phones?
    After compilation compiler will make exe and APP file,for installing that file u will make sis file from PKG file, for more information read SDK help, how to make sis file?



    NOTE: If u want to run ur application on mobile compile ur code in GCCE and if u want to run on emulator compile ur code WINSCW UDEB.
    Regards,

    Thanks alot!

    Here another question
    Basically, If I like to build an application for both s60 and s40
    can I use Symbian C++ or Open C++? or any other? (or that Symbian C++ works only on S60?)

    Lior.

    I don't think you can do both S60 & S40 with C++ of any kind.

    I basically have never done anything for S40, but I would assume its j2me only. Anyway, you can do C++ for S60, so just get the tools, read a bit on the getting started section and have a try.

    "Generic S40" has no support for anything else than JavaME.

    Ok, things are cleared :]

    Do you think nokia will create more S40 models? or the next generation is about S60 & S80 phones only?

    There is a huge market of S40 phones, so i do not think Nokia would think to abandon the concept of S40 devices. And S60 would definitely go in parallel but i am afraid of S80.

    PS: Personal assumptions.
