    Question Need Help on Messaging Application over WLAN

    Hi, I am developing an application that would be able to send messages over an ad-hoc WLAN connection between two phones. I use Symbian C++ and 3rd Ed. SDK for Symbian 9.1

    I need advice on what kind of approach must I be using.

    My plan is to use Resolvr, a Zeroconf framework for Symbian so that users will not have to manually configure their IP to connect to other devices. And then I found out about a serverless XMPP-like chat protocol XEP-0174 which is a service type for DNS-SD(service discovery) feature of the Zeroconf framework. The messaging service uses XML streams to connect and send messages.

    My question is,
    Is it possible to use this approach?

    If so, how can I use XML streams using Symbian C++? Do I need a certain library or API for that? or is there a built-in support for XML in the SDK?

    If not, please give me some advice on what to do. The goal of the application (for now) is just to send messages over an ad-hoc WLAN connection between two S60 phones.

    What I have done so far is just a richtext editor for typing the messages.

    Thanks in advance!

    Search for XML. For example in the SDK Help and in the Wiki.
    If you happen to use the old Wiki-search (from my signature for example), "XML" brings you to a direct page, so try XML parser instead.
