    Do you know C++ well? If yes then it'll be easier, if not, 3 months isn't very long.


    If you're writing it for the SYmbian platform you could also consider writing it in Java? provided that had as much access to the bluetooth APis that the natice Symbian does (which I dont know if it does).

    and I think for worm like application the support from community will not be the best, I would reconsider changing the topic completely to something more productive.

    Re: Question about Symbian application

    If you are new to symbian and you know C++ then 3 months are more then enough.
    Try to learn from examples that are provide with series 60 SDK.
    That will help you learn faster.

    Cheers,

    Re: Question about Symbian application

    I have another question:
    It is possible to implement an application "server" on mobile phone that propagate itself and remains "active" in background?
    I want that this application scans all devices (BlueTooth) every x minute (x is a prefixed time) and propagate itself!.

    ...this is only for study...

    yeah right...

    Basically you cannot propagate an application automatically from one device to another without user confirmation for installation.

    But you can do an automated BT discovery for the devices in range and automatically send sis files to them. But, as I said, the user will have to confirm the installation.
