LWUIT for Series 40

This section describes how to use the LWUIT for Series 40, the port of the Lightweight UI Toolkit for Nokia's Series 40 phones.

LWUIT for Series 40 - Rich UIs developed quickly

LWUIT helps you create applications with appealing graphical user interface (GUI) for Java-enabled mobile phones. LWUIT supports visual components, animations, layouts, theming, localisation and more. You can also use any JSR API supported by Series 40 phones.

Intended audience

The Developer's Guide section is intended for Java developers creating impressive application user interfaces in their Java applications targeted for Series 40 phones. The module gets you started with LWUIT development and lists all UI components and other important LWUIT elements (theming, resources, animations, etc.) you need in application development. You need to have basic Java programming skills to use this library.

The UX guidelines section gathers guidelines for designing LWUIT applications for the Series 40 full touch, touch and type, and non-touch devices. It is useful not only for designers, but also for programmers who need visual guidelines and best practices when implementing the user interface.
