This updated document describes how application developers should handle the compatibility of C++ applications at installation time, using S60 identification codes (Platform IDs and Product IDs). Note that from S60 3rd Edition onwards, the product IDs of all devices are maintained in the Forum Nokia Device Specifications.
This updated document provides guidelines and describes how to port S60 2nd Edition C++ applications to S60 3rd Edition. The main changes between S60 2nd and 3rd Edition are in the application base constructor (for skin changes), new application entry point, target type, application resource, registration, and security. The document has been written based on experiences from porting regular S60 2nd Edition C++ applications, such S60 Platform: POP/IMAP Example. There are code snippets from the example in the document for demonstrative purposes.
