    Based on that question you probably can not. But there is a chance that you will learn: a first step of using something is checking if that something offers an API for you.

    Hi,

    what do you mean by that ? I was asking if there is a public api for that. I did some search but
    couldn't find. I did find some docs related to future facebook integration on Nokia phones, but
    couldn't find any symbian specific apis for integrating facebook into an application.

    Regards,
    Jaak

    I think that investigating the implementation of Facebook Connect (since it is JavaScript after all) should give some clues.

    It means that there is no ready-made API in the Symbian C++ API set. Since Facebook is a web-based service, you have to interface it via the generic networking API-s (sockets, HTTP stuff, perhaps with some Web Service/XML seasoning).

    hi wizard_hu,
    can we use the API given by flickr but how we can we use it in Symbian C++.
    as we can get a library for C in flickr but how to use is the question and is confusing.

    like in J2ME we can add the jar file of the Flickr as FlickrJ.now what we can do in case of symbian C++


    regards

    You could try to write your own library to working with online service, based on it's API.

    as there is no library provided for Symbian you have to use HTTP APIs to communicate with the service.

    What did you concluded from the whole discussion done here before your post? Also if you are looking for an easy way to go then i would suggest using Qt/QML(search for webview in QML)
