    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    1.I feel this release is not for full touch devices like Asha because it's simulator can't demonstrate the rotation between portrait and landscape screen,which is not convenience for testing Widget's response when the action happens.

    2.The simulator provide UI to alter feathers of device,such as resolution,language etc.But these feathers will be back to default when simulator restarts and developers may set it again.Even this case is only one time a day,which is also a low efficient development.

    3.The menu of the Widget is still in English after changed the language setting of the simulator.

    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    Hi,
    Here is my feedback on Nokia Web tools.

    First of all I would congratulate you people had done a good job that you have introduced an amazing tool into the market. I must surprised about the tool.when i first heard about the tool that Nokia web tools, i thought it would be similar to all existing tools but when i worked hands on it, i felt very very easy to develop an app. A good developer can able to develop a good app with better quality within shorter time. That was the damn good thing about the tool. One thing that i noticed that it make use of eclipse. i felt very good if it develops applications with its own environment of course it can make use of different technologies like JAVA, HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT, etc. I can also suggest you to grab the technology like drag and drop facility. That makes the product very efficient and more easier to developer.
    One thing i have observed while developing apps, the Nokia simulator makes some kind of disturbances like crashing, goes into not responding state, or not responding to input from the tool etc. And try to make the tool to occupy least memory in primary memory. Please be concentrate on performance issues because those makes the tool efficient. so that ultimately it gives the better output.
    And i think the Future to phone vendors gonna be the app world.Hope the Web Tool will make the wonders in app world.

    Igor,
    This is a very good suggestion. Could be part of the template wizard as well as the snippet customization.

    Kranthi,
    Thanks for your feedback. Could you provide more details so that we can look at your particular scenarios of simulator crashing? It would be help us to reproduce the problem.
    In the next version that we are working on, simulator performance and stability are two areas that we are looking at improving.

    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    I installed the Nokia Web Tools in another PC using Ubuntu and the simulator is not working (I got it working on my home PC). Everytime I run an app (does not matter if it is local or cloud preview) the WDE stops at "Launching *** in Simulator". Everything appears to work ok, but the simulator won't launch.

    The first thing I tried was to launch WEBSDKSIM from the command line, but it complained about some libraries (phonon and multimedia stuff). I copied these libraries to my /usr/lib and now I'm getting a segmentation fault. The complete output is below.

    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    I simply downloaded the .deb from the website and installed it using Ubuntu Software Center. Also tried reinstalling, but it didn't work. Is this a known issue? How can I fix this situation? I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 (32 bit) on a Core i7 with 8Gb RAM.

    Thanks.

    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    Hi r60600,

    Thanks for your feedback on 2.0 SDK. Below is the clarification to your questions.

    1. In 2.0 release, screen rotation (from portrait to landscape) support is not available.
    For webapps, the screen is always locked to portrait mode. This is the reason why you don't see rotation support available in the simulator.

    2. The simulator resolution and language settings are per app. If you happen to change the setting (say resolution from TT to FT), that setting will persist for that app. So next time, you test another app, you will see the simulator screen resolution revert to that setting.

    3. Agree this is a limitation with the simulator. The app options menus is part of the webapps platform itself and the options menu is not localized in the simulator.
    The language setting is mainly to run the app itself that's localized.

    Your feedback will help to improve the SDK.

    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    Here's my feedback, for now:

    1. There seems to be an error in the documentation. In the page about adding ads in the app (http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resou...rtising-2.html) they instruct you to add the wrong javascript file from inneractive. I tried with it and my ads were not recognized until I changed for the address in their page, which is different (https://inneractive.jira.com/wiki/di...SDK+guidelines). Maybe it's just a coincidence, but even if it is, it's good to be consistent.

    2. In the Ubuntu SDK, the Debugger doesn't appear after it's closed. Steps to reproduce: 1. Run web app; 2. Open Debugger. 3. Close Debugger 4. Run Web app again. 5. Open the debugger. It will not appear.

    3. The mobile web library (http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resou...y/#!index.html) has a downloadable version that includes a eclipse-based viewer, but when you open the zip there's only a eclipse.exe file. It's easy to install the docs on another eclipse instance, but I think that it should support Linux out of the box.

    4. The mobile web library does not come included with the SDK. This is more of a suggestion, but I downloaded 200mb, I think this should include some docs (and it's only 20mb more). I will try to post an article in the Wiki on how to install the downloadable package in the Nokia WDE so this gets fixed until the next release.

    5. Is this thread only for feedback on the tools or we can post problems with code too? I found some differences between the emulator and the devices and wanted to know if they should be reported here.

    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    Hi Igordsm,

    Thanks for your feedback. Below are my comments.

    1. Agree, the documentation needs to be consistent at both places. We will check with Inneractive if this has been recently changed in which case we will update the documentation.

    2. We will look into this bug.

    3. The downloadable version contains all the library contents. Please download from http://www.developer.nokia.com/info/...s_Library.html

    4. This is a good suggestion, we will consider this for our next release.

    5. This thread is mainly for feedback on the 2.0 release. You could post anything related to webapps 2.0 SDK release (platform APIs, tools features). For general webapps questions related to code, you can use the S40 webapps discussion board @ http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...es-40-Web-Apps

    rk_s40,

    I think I expressed myself badly about #3. What I meant was that the offline package doesn't work on Linux out of the box. Only a windows executable is provided. Since the viewer uses Eclipse, the support is (probably) already there, the only thing thats missing is the shortcut to launch everything in Linux too. The library does contain everything, but double-clicking eclipse.exe in Linux doesn't work.

    Re: Nokia Web Tools 2.0 (beta) released - a prize for your feedback sir?

    Hi everyone,

    I just found 1 bug. I don't know whether this is has already posted by other people or not.

    in Javascript, write this code :

    var x = 0;
    while(true){
    alert(x);
    }

    and it will produce an infinite loop also infinite alert.
    I know that alert will not be displayed in the real device, but alert is something that very useful; sometimes programmer use it to make sure whether the script/application reach that line of code or not. Or to check whether it has the right value or not.

    I have tried to reload the simulator (CTRL + R and "Reload" button), change the emulator type (from full touch -> half touch or else) and the alert still there.
    When I tried to close the emulator, the toolbar is gone but the emulator is not, and not responding.

    FYI :
    Windows 7 64-bit
    WebTools Version: 2.0.0.201206191705
    WDE Version: 3.6.0.201206191705

    I haven't tried it yet on the newest WDE (Released on 27 August 2012), still downloading...

    UPDATE:
    The problem is still there in the latest WDE I just downloaded.
