    Re: difference between QT and Symbian C++

    Symbian C++ is the native progarmming language (a C++ variant) that is used to develop native applications which call directly into Symbian/S60 libraries.

    Qt is an UI framework which adds an abstraction layer between the OS and the application, making possible that the same application code will works on all the OS' it supports (Linux, Windows, OSx and Symbian). Qt applications are written using the C++ language, with some extension as well.

    Does that means that we can access the Symbian s60 library?

    Yes, when needed you can access native APIs. See the Mobile Extension as an example of Qt wrappers created on top of Symbian APIs. The Mobility APIs project will add official Qt support for many of the same APIs but, should you need somethign more, or something else or should you want to link to your own Symbian/S60 engine DLLs you can certainly do that.

    You can intermix Symbian C++ and Qt code when it makes sense to do so. For example you may have a Qt based GUI for a Symbian C++ engine if the features you want to access are Symbian specific and cannot be reached through Qt APIs.
