Hi all,
Is it possible to access all the network functions of Symbian OS like the Bluetooth,IR,Camera(not network function) for the Series 60 mobile phones using java or must one use c++ for this purpose...

thanks

In order to use Java to access these areas, the device itself must implement the particular JSR/API for those features. For instance, some Nokia Series 60 implement JSR 82 Bluetooth API, some don't. Those that don't would require you to have to program in C++ to access those features.

Does that make sense. It is device specific. You need to know which APIs that device implements. You can check out Sun's java site has a link to J2ME devices with a grid on device and features.

To add to Mark's reply.

If you are looking to develop only for series 60 device then Forum Nokia would be the best place to look at the specs.
