    Start developping for Nokia C3 (S40 model)

    Hey everyone,

    I am one of those still walking around without a smart phone (yes they exist). I have got a Nokia C3 and I would like to make an application for it. However I cannot find any recent documentation on how to start.
    I started with downloading the Nokia SDK 2.0 which is working fine but I cannot seem to change the emulator phone type. When I try to run the application one of those shiny touch phones comes up (without an option to change to Nokia C3 layout).

    Does anyone have experience with developing for the Nokia C3? Suggestions where I might start?

    Thanks in advance!

    The Nokia C3-s (like https://www.developer.nokia.com/Devi...cations/C3-00/ and https://www.developer.nokia.com/Devi...cations/C3-01/) are not DP2 devices, you may rather want to get a Series 40 6th edition (with/without FP, depending on which C3 model you have) SDK.

    If you want an emulator with a C3 style layout then you're going to need to download the 1.1 SDK.

    https://www.developer.nokia.com/Deve...platform_SDKs/

    What kind of app are you thinking of doing anyway? Nokia also offer developers the ability to create a web app which they can wrap up as a jar file and use as an app. If you're looking at getting started and don't have a lot of app development experience, it might be an easier way to get going - https://www.developer.nokia.com/Deve...s_40_web_apps/

    @wizard_hu_

    Thanks for the info, I've downloaded the SDK which should support the Nokia C3, when I launched the emulator it picks the first phone of this serie: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Devic...r2=s40_6ed_fp0
    Can I somehow switch it to use the C3?

    @grift

    Are you sure about that? I don't see the C3 in the overview of http://www.developer.nokia.com/Devic...series40_dp1.1

    I would like to develop an application for remote controlling my server.
    I do have programming experience in multiple languages which includes the Java environment but this is the first time on mobile application development.

    Well, the 1.1 SDK has the QWERTY keyboard emulator that you've got on your C3, so if you're looking to test the functionality of the physical keyboard through an emulator it might be your only option.

    By the way, if it's a Linux server, you could just download this app - http://www.midpssh.org/ It supports your C3 too.

    That explains a lot. I thought it wasn't compatible since the C3 was not in the list of phones for the 1.1 SDK.
    Will try it now

    In case you didn't see, I updated my post there. Perhaps it would be of use to you.

    By the way, if it's a Linux server, you could just download this app - http://www.midpssh.org/ It supports your C3 too.

    If you're building your application under the 1.1 SDK there still could be incompatibilities by the way with 6th Edition though. If you want to publish your app to the Nokia store, then you'll probably want to test against the 1.1/2.0 Nokia SDK regardless so it shouldn't be a problem anyway.

    Thanks, it is a Linux VPS with a virtual gaming server running. I prefer to access the game server only due to security reasons but thanks for the info.
    Still installing/configuring stuff. Will let you know if it works.

    I've installed the 1.1 SDK and I am currently using it with Netbeans, have a question though (I do not have experience with Netbeans, used to work with Eclipse).

    This is my screen:

    And this is shown in examples:
    https://netbeans.org/images_www/arti...ject-small.png

    Notice I do not have the Source, Screen, Flow, Analizer buttons and the "Pallete" doesn't show up. I've tried to add them with View but I didn't find anything relevant.
