Porting the .NET Compact Framework to Symbian Phones
By: Frank Siegemund, Robert Sugar, Alain Gefflaut, Friedrich van Megen
This paper presents our experiences in porting selected parts of the .NET Compact Framework to Symbian smartphones. Our port includes support for basic services such as threading and file access, low-level networking modules as well as Web Services. We also present a portable .NET GUI for the Symbian platform. The paper shows how the programming models of .NET can be efficiently mapped to the runtime structures provided by operating systems for resource-constrained devices such as Symbian OS.
