The WMLScript Development Environment
Tips: June 2000

- Nokia WAP Toolkit. You can find it in this URL.
- Java Run Time Environment. You can find it in this URL.
Let's assume you saved both
packages in your
directory. You should have now two files in this directory:
(about 10MB) and
(about 5MB). Notice that we assume you downloaded the Java Run Time Environment
in one piece through the Internet. Installing these packages is a straightforward
task. You just double click on the Java Run Time Environment executable and
follow the installation instructions. Same goes for the Nokia WAP Toolkit executable.
Once both packages are installed, you're ready to go.
Invoke the Nokia WAP Toolkit. The standard installation adds it to the Start/Programs menu, under Nokia WAP Toolkit/Toolkit. The toolkit will load and you'll get two windows: the Nokia WAP Toolkit window and the Nokia 6150 window. Open the file
currency.wml. You should get the Nokia WAP Toolkit window and the Nokia 6150 image. You can edit your WML and WMLScript here. You can also compile your programs (yes, you need to compile them like C and C++ code). Most importantly, you can run your script from here and operate your Nokia 6150 as if it is hooked up to a WAP server.
