LWUIT for Nokia Asha app development


Published on

This webinar presentation introduces the version of the Lightweight User Interface Toolkit (LWUIT) optimised for Series 40. LWUIT makes it very easy to create compelling UIs for Nokia Series 40 phones, using a programming paradigm similar to Swing. If you don’t know what Swing means, don’t worry. Java expert Michael Samarin walks you through LWUIT features including transitions, animations, comprehensive UI components, layout management and Series 40 Themes support. In coding demons he shows you how to use the LWUIT Resource Editor and steps you through development tasks associated with making LWUIT-based Java apps for Series 40 phones.

Join the sessions:
