Jolts 2007: Mobile

Monday, July 16, 2007 - 10:45 by EclipseWeb Web
Nokia has eased the burden considerably with their Eclipse-based Carbide C++ development environment. Most of the upper-tier Nokia models run the Symbian operating system, requiring a special C++ compiler and linker to convert code into executables. Once developers select the type of Nokia device they wish to target and load its profile into Carbide, applications can be first written and monitored in the virtual emulator before sending to the actual device. This is especially useful for apps that consume network resources.
