Talk:Porting Qt Quick Application to Meego Harmattan Qt Quick Application

Hamishwillee - Deceptive title and Abstract

Hi Chintan

What I think this actually delivers is a topic that explains how to build your topic for MeeGo - ie you're starting with a generic Qt Quick app that you've only built on Symbian, and you're doing the needed changes for building to MeeGo. If so, I'm not sure you need to go to this effort - you should be able to specify a MeeGo build target and create the additional build files needed. If not, then this is useful ... but you still need a better title.

As is, the current title and Abstract are deceptive. "Porting Qt Quick Application to Meego Harmattan Qt Quick Application" implies that you're starting from an application that uses only generic Qt Quick components running on some other platform, and then you're porting it to run properly on MeeGo - the implication being that you would use the platform style and the Qt Quick Components for that platform.

Am I correct in this assessment? If so then first thing to do would be determine how/if you can add a new build target to the project for MeeGo if its initially just for Symbian. If that works you will need to modify the title in line. If not, then perhaps a more accurate title explaining exactly the problem you're solving.

Regards Hamish


I deleted the Preconditions. You only need these if you're doing something a developer would consider nonstandard - this does not include installing the SDK, although a lot of articles do include that information (a waste of space in my opinion)

Right Hamish, Thanks for updates.

Actually when I created this article, Meego in Qt SDK was just announced. So I thought It would be good to create such porting article. But now I think it is common and not so important becuz of the Qt SDK feature. So the article is little bit lost its important.

So you can change the title of this article and if you find it useless then you can remove too.
