I received the CD with ?Symbian Crystal SDK for Java 6.0? from Nokia and installed the software on my PC (Pentium-III 800 MHz, 512 MB of RAM), running Windows98.

I placed all Emulator?s files to the local disk F: and in the autoexec.bat there are 2 strings :
SET EPOCROOT=\Symb_6\NokiaJavaPATH F:\Symb_6\Shared\epoc32\tools;F:\Symb_6\Shared\epoc32\gcc\bin

I use the following EPOC Emulator?s drive mapping in file ?epoc.ini? :
_epoc_drive_s E:\JPrj

Then I create very simple java application (analogous "Hello" example from QUICK START section of Crystal SDK documentation). See source code below :

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
public class EpocMain extends Frame implements ActionListener, WindowListener {
public EpocMain() {
super( "FrameExample" );
addWindowListener( this );
setLayout( new FlowLayout( FlowLayout.LEFT, 0, 0 ) );
Button but = new Button( "Example" );
but.addActionListener( this );
add( but );
setSize( getPreferredSize() );
public static void main(String[] args) { new EpocMain(); }

public void paint( Graphics Gr ) {
Gr.setColor( Color.red );
Gr.drawRect( 5, 50, getSize().width-15,
getSize().height-60 );
System.out.println( "paint() done" );
public Dimension getPreferredSize() { return new Dimension( 150, 100 ); }
public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e ) {
dispatchEvent( new WindowEvent( this, WindowEvent.WINDOW_CLOSING ) );
public void windowClosing( WindowEvent e ) {
System.exit( 0 );
public void windowClosed( WindowEvent e ) {}
public void windowOpened( WindowEvent e ) {}
public void windowIconified( WindowEvent e ) {}
public void windowDeiconified( WindowEvent e ) {}
public void windowActivated( WindowEvent e ) {}
public void windowDeactivated( WindowEvent e ) {}

I tried running my application using the following ?.bat?-file :
cd \Symb_6\NokiaJava\Epoc32\Release\wins\urel
pjava -cp s:\EpocEmulator\classes; EpocMain

This application starts successfully, because in console-window appears appropriate output
(see method paint() ), but no frame shows on Emulator?s screen. And only in about 2 min icons of Extras-group are displayed on Emulator?s screen.
And in the folder C:\WIN98\TEMP I can see files :
ATRA1000.BIN and

EPOCWIND.OUT, that contains the output :
Can't load ELOCL0.DLL
Can't load EKDATA0.DLL
Can't load Enos.LDD
CPhoneModel::ConstructLCSSIndicatorMonitor::Start create data store ...

I can launch my application only like that :
open Emulator?s File Manager, select file ?EpocMain.class? and press ?Enter?.
Then my application?s frame is displayed on Emulator?s screen.

Why can?t I start my java-application using ?pjava...? ?
