Hello everyone !

I have recently installed the resources required to get started with developing gaming applications for the S40 platform (full-touch). I am using the "Nokia SDK 2.0 for Java — for Series 40 apps ". I have developed applications for Windows Phone, Windows 8, BlackBerry (web-apps), etc before but I am relatively new to this domain.

I am trying to make a basic app with some UI like buttons, labels, input-text box, etc. I was wondering what are the best practices for this? I realize that in Eclipse we cannot simply drag-and-drop elements like windows applications, so a lot of code has to be manually written. I tried to get my hands on some demo projects, but couldn't really get a hold on them.

Some tips/resources at the beginning will save me a lot of time. Please provide any information that you feel may be useful to beginners like me.

Thanks in advance.
