    How to emulate various S40 devices so as to test different screen dimensions?

    Is there a way to have the S40 emulator emulate various S40 devices? If that is possible, how would that be accomplished?

    This is for the purpose of testing MIDlets with different screen dimensions.

    Hello John_123,

    the first (and probably most obvious) answer would be to use several different SDK emulators. The Nokia SDKs which support Java ME development can be found from the Nokia Developer site: https://www.developer.nokia.com/Develop/Java/Tools/

    The support on Series 40 SDKs can be bit limited since the SDK emulators do not support every display dimensions within one SDK nor certain, possibly related features (like video streaming within a Java ME application's UI) cannot be tested at all in an SDK emulator but they are available through physical devices only. To complement the testing, f.ex. for testing 320x240 dimensions the S60 SDK emulator (S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 for example) or testing with the Remote Device Access service by Nokia Developer could be used to certain extend instead for reference (while keeping in mind the differences between the platforms).
