Native and Java ME Development on Symbian OS
Source: Symbian Foundation
This paper provides a general comparison of the two main technologies used for application development on Symbian OS at this time - Symbian C++ and Java ME. Since technologists are often polarized in their personal and professional opinions of these technologies, it is important to state that it is not the purpose of this paper to support either side of this debate. Rather, the paper argues that in a world of commercial realities, there are strong cases for using (and being proficient in) both. While Java ME and Symbian C++ are currently the most widely used on Symbian OS, there are also a number of other choices available, such as runtimes like Flash Lite and Python.
