Dear readers , Sorry, I was busy with my startup so couldn't blog for a month.....Well I am back now with full zeal and ofcourse passion! Recently had been to Nokia Code Camp by Forum Nokia at
IIIT-B , It was real fun, had free wireless internet, laptop, tea, lunch and yeah a bunch of GEEKS!As the name says "Code Camp", I thought there would be more coding than just talk but it was the opposite! :( . Although provided laptops to everyone, I used my laptop as i am kinda addicted to it, like a Girl Friend :P. So I had everything, and was just waiting for the session to start.
The Session started, again a business guy!(Prakash Sayini) In every event business people talk first and then the real thing, i mean tech happens! hmmm... will have to figure out why???.... phew.....and they gave us a document which had the agenda and all the tutorials,ppts to start developing small appl
ications for Nokia S40 cellphone. So I didnt wait for the session i.e coding session , and started browsing tutorials online.Starte
d using Netbeans 6.0 (mobile edition) , J2ME and then developed 'hello world' application for my cellphone and transfered the application to my cellphone and luckily it worked!woooot :-) If you are interested in developing a hello world app for your cellphone check out these steps ........
- S40 based cellphone (check if your mobilephone is S40 based cellphone)
- Netbeans - Mobility Pack (download "mobility")
- Nokia S40 SDK (download 5th edition , feature pack 1)
- JDK 6.0(32bit) (choose-[others])
*if you dont have a S40 based cellphone ,dont worry there is another way to test your app, just read.....
Open Netbeans - > New Project - > Select mobility -> MIDP
Key in the project name and click next , next and finish!
The default file "Hellomidlet.java will be open , In your workspace change the view->editor->screen
Select "Hello", In the Properties Window key in some text in text field, this will be displayes under the label 'hello'.
Now to open this app on your S40 based Nokia Mobile phone , goto Documents->NetbeansProject->MobileApplication1->dist
Copy MobileApplication1.jar and send it to your cellphone memory through PC Suite or any other application
This above tutorial talks about creating a hello world J2ME application for a mobilephone , but in the Nokia S40 SDK, Start-> Nokia Connectivity Framework-> Run Emulator , You can see a simulated S40 cellphone here , so that you can test the app right here using the SDK if you dont have a S40 cellphone.
After doing all this , it was lunch time and the theory session was still going on about Nokia S40, MIDP, J2ME, Mobile media API...... by Balagopal K S.
