|Communication lies at the heart of Symbian OS and the devices that use
it. Symbian OS has a powerful and flexible communications architecture
that addresses current state?of?the?art as well as future
functionality. This rich environment gives developers access to
important technologies such as wireless Bluetooth networks, TCP/IP
networking, infrared data transport, email and SMS messaging, and WAP
Symbian OS Communications Programming is a guide to
the Symbian OS communications architecture. It provides developers
with authoritative and practical information on the communications
models and programming interfaces that are used by Symbian OS, along
with illustrative and timely examples.
SOCP covers all
transport technologies supported by Symbian OS v6.1 including:serial
and infrared communication, TCP/IP network support, Bluetooth, and
telephony. Examples show how to take advantage of each technology.
SOCP also provides coverage of content technologies, such as HTML
and WAP, and includes an explanation of the Symbian OS messaging
architecture. Examples demonstrate the sending and receiving of email
and SMS messages and to show the client/server interaction involved in
pushing and pulling content to and from servers.
topic coverage includes the use of the Symbian OS communications
database and a review of supported and future synchronization
technologies such as SyncML.
This guide is designed for
developers who have experience of programming in C++ and are
interested in taking advantage of the communications possibilities of
Symbian OS. No prior experience with communications programming is
