Continued Symbian C++ commitment
While Qt is recommended for new Symbian development, Nokia Developer continues to provide access to tools for Symbian C++ development. This continued support enables you to maintain legacy applications and migrate them to the latest versions of the Symbian platform. The primary tools are:
- Symbian SDKs — with tools for application development, including command line development, these SDKs include documentation and a simulator that enables testing on a Microsoft Windows PC. SDKs are available for platforms up to and including Symbian Belle.
- Carbide.c++ — an IDE specifically designed for creating Symbian apps in C++. Based on Eclipse and the C/C++ development tools from the Eclipse CDT Project, Carbide.c++ provides tools to support Symbian C++ coding, building apps for the SDK emulators, and performing on-device debugging among others.
See the Tools section for more information on these and other tools available.
