    In general the Web tools are not really suiatble for games as such, since games usually would require highly responsive UI engines etc. Thus I would suggest checking the tools & what can be done with them, and then seeing whether they would be suitable for your targets. And if you feel you need something else, then do check the Java ME offering for more options.

    Hi ahsanSDq! Welcome to Nokia Developer Discussion Boards!!

    In Series 40 you can do app Development in Java & Web Apps. But Web apps is not the right technology to develop games. You can develop some simple games though with Web Apps.

    For advanced Game development in Series 40, you can choose Java ME.

    Re: S40 web tool development

    I have been looking at developing application using the Nokia Web Developer Environment in the past few days.

    Like has already been mentioned, there are limitations (lack of data persistence on the device) but what is loses in power, it more than makes up for in speed. Applications that might take a week using JME could be done in as little as a day with Nokia WDE. If you're doing an application that you know can be replicated on HTML easily enough, then the Nokia Web Tools are ideal.

    By the way, the most useful guide to getting started is the following PDF - http://tools.nokia.com/wt/doc/jsdt/s..._Reference.pdf I spent quite a lot of time fishing in the dark until I stumbled across that API reference. It really should be made into a web accessible HTML version (i.e. if you Google an mwl operation, a reference to the API should pop up, like it does for Java).

    My only criticism at the moment with WDE is that there are far too few of the latest devices on RDA. At the moment, there isn't a single S40 Developer Platform 2.0 that I can test my applications on. There are only two devices on S40 Developer Platform 1.1 (one of them won't even launch the Nokia Xpress browser, so really 1 device). Finally, there isn't a single S40 Developer Platform 1.0 device.

    Yep, it's very useful. I'm not sure if you're aware about the online 'Series 40 Web Apps Developer's Library', pretty useful too. For example, the mwl operations are listed here: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resou...l-methods.html

    I would personally love downloadable .chm format for the developer library!
