EMCC Resources

emmclogo.gifEMCC have some interesting things on their web site, especially if you are considering Symbian development.

The Technical articles page includes introductory articles on Mobile JSRs, Symbian Signed, IMS, Wi-Fi, VoIP, UIQ v.3, Exchange ActiveSync, Push-To-Talk, Push Email, S60 v3 and Symbian OS v9.

The Developer Zone has full example source code from the book Developing Series 60 Applications (beware it’s pre-Symbian 9.1/S60 3rd Edition so it’s a bit old now), a download for highlighting Symbian keywords in Visual C++ 5/6, a download to allow viewing of Symbian types in the Visual C++ debugger, and CLINDEX, a command line tool to examine Symbian libraries and their exports.

By the way, if you are considering Symbian development it’s best to start with Carbide.c++ Express rather than battle with SDKs under Visual Studio. I have used Carbide.c++ heavily on three client projects now and as of version 1.2 it became stable and useful enough to replace Carbide.vs and CodeWarrior for general S60 and UIQ application development.
