    Need advices~

    Hi all, i'm new to Symbian ,i'm gonna develop a client app via TCP/IP on symbian with carbide c++.
    Before developping, I need to know if the client i mentioned is possible with no problem.

    I just have a look disscusboard roughly, and i've found some opinions that there are some problems with communication with TCP/IP sockets
    such as multi threads communications. is it true?? or Do you think it is ok to communicate via TCP/IP socket on symbian os (with no problems)?

    I'm just a novice. I need your helps...

    thanks for reading.

    According to my experience, TCP/IP actually works on Symbian. Normally in Symbian C++ code you use the Active Object design pattern for handling asynchronous events (like network operations), but threading is also supported. Also note that you can port existing standard C/C++ code using the OpenC/C++ plugins.

    thank you, wizard_hu_ for the advice.

    so i can use active object or open c/c++ to develop the client app. Alright.

    Thank you indeed.

    -ps : you are 'wizard' as well...

    Also note that if you are targetting recent S60 devices (starting with S60 3rd edition), their SDK comes with various networking examples already (pure TCP/IP is used in 'Chat', HTTP is employed in 'WebClient', and the Web Services framework is shown in 'AddressBook').

    One more small point to add.

    TCP/IP is the underlying protocol for HTTP and symbian devices have a fully working and stable HTTP protocol stack shared by it webbrowser and apps. So that implicitly implies that symbian TCP/IP stack is fully working and stable.
