    Welcome to the magical world of Mobile application development. Actually, the minimal things that you need is a text editor & zip applciation, but of course if you want to do the development a bit better, you could get Aptana and install the WRT plug-in into it. Then of course the 5th edition SDK is good for testing the Widget in PC.

    Developer library is sort of help documnetation, it would help you to understand different APIs and how you can use them.

    for 3, short answer is No. You can not combine symbian codes in your Widget, but then again you an run Widget in Symbian application, though the communications between the runtimes is rather non-existent. Also currently you can not utilize WRT specific APIs in your own Symbian application, though I gotta remember to public my example on using device interface on own brower control soon, so bit help coming in there..

    Check Wiki for examples, there is plenty, and if you are interested on REST services, I made some sceleton application there last weekend: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...th_WRT_widgets

    1. The minimum set of tools is a text editor, an image/bitmap editor and a tool to make zip files (which you name with the .wgz extension).

    2. I don't know.

    3. No, not directly. No. A widget can launch a Symbian application, though.
