    My problem is that the downloaded library is just like the some folder having no extension and containing some more folder such
    src(containing source code),Example(contains some example),test(contains some more folder) like that....

    I want to include it in my application ,so how can i make it possible ,Should i have to convert it in .lib or .dll form??
    And how i can convert it in that??As I guess i have to past that form in the path

    "C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd\Epoc32\release\winscw\udeb"(for debug mode)

    I have download the library from the link
    "http://xmpp.org/software/libraries.shtml" it is C++ library ""gloox"".

    Hi,

    You need to "port" this library to Symbian using Open C/C++.

    I wrote some papers about this for the Symbian developer network - they might be a reasonable starting point. There are also lots of porting examples here on Forum Nokia.

    Hi,

    You need to follow the process in the paper I linked with your library. An important first step will be to create the bld.inf and MMP files for this library by looking at its makefiles.

    Open C just provides you with some libraries that should mean you need to make far fewer changes to the code to get it to work on Symbian OS.
