Warning.pngWarning: This example was created for the NFC implementation provided on Series 40 devices, and may include use of features not yet available for NFC on Symbian devices.

This example show the use of JDK 6.0 and the javax.smartcardio.* package in order to communicate with the Java Card Applet in the secure element of the handset. Download appropriate NetBeans Project:
Make sure you have JDK 6.0 and a PC/SC Reader (NOT NXP's PEGODA!) installed.
