The SDK delivers all the tools required to build Java applications and
includes an S60 device emulator, various tools, Java API implementations,
documentation, and example applications. The S60 SDK is a hybrid: it
supports both native Symbian OS and Java development, which is an
additional benefit if you are dealing with both.
The S60 Platform SDKs for Symbian OS enable you to take full
advantage of the features of the NetBeans IDE with Mobility pack. The
first thing to do is to find which SDK is relevant for your target device.
Within the S60 platform, there are various editions (significant updates
in Symbian OS functionality) and feature packs (FP). We focus on S60 5th
Edition and S60 3rd Edition, which are based on Symbian OS v9.x and
MIDP 2.x. Feature packs are incremental improvements within an edition,
adding, for example, new JSRs or improving the supported features within
an existing JSR. Each combination of edition and feature pack has its own
To find out which platform, edition, and feature pack your device
uses, consult the Forum Nokia Device section at
devices and check the developer platform section of the technical spec-
ifications. Once you know the version and feature pack of your device,
download the appropriate SDK. For example, the Nokia 5800 Xpress-
Music is based on S60 5th Edition, the Nokia N73 is based on S60 3rd
Edition initial release, the Nokia N95 is based on S60 3rd Edition FP1,
and the Nokia N96 is based on S60 3rd Edition FP2.
The S60 emulator (see Figure 5.3) provides a trueemulation of Symbian
OS and the MIDP environment delivered on S60 devices, enabling
