Hello to all Ranchers,

I have developed a GPS based application using Location API.Now i want to test the application using simulator before the application
is tested on a real device.Also i know that S60 platforms do support Location API but can i test the application on the Simulator? If any one has tested a GPS based application on a simulator please help me on this issue and also provide me with links on the same subject.

Thank you very much Amir for your reply.But i also want to know how this can be done on a S60 series simulator because this is the simulator we have been using throughout the duration of the application.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
