Developing PJSIP for Symbian S60 3rd Edition using Carbide C++


Previously PJSIP did not support Carbide C++ as the development tools for Symbian target, since Carbide did not import PJSIP's MMP files properly. But with the release of Carbide C++ version 1.2, it seems that Carbide is now able to build PJSIP projects properly. And since it seems that Nokia strongly suggests to use Carbide for the development tools instead of CodeWarrior, it may worth to write some small documentation to help you get started with developing PJSIP applications on Symbian using this tool.


For this tutorial, we will need:

  • Symbian S60 3rd Edition Maintenance Release (MR). Other SDK versions may work, but I did not test it.
  • Carbide C++ version 1.2. You will need the Developer Edition to do on-device debugging (21 days evaluation is available).
  • Nokia PC Suite for the connectivity between the device and your PC (I use version 6.85)
  • Latest PJSIP from SVN trunk
  • Nokia S60 3rd Edition device (I use Nokia E70, but any S60 3rd Edition device should do, I think)
  • Nokia data cable for on-device debugging (you can also use Bluetooth connection, but this tutorial will not cover it)


SDK and Carbide Installations

Follow the installation instructions in the SDK and Carbide documentation. Please install Symbian SDK on the same drive as PJSIP.

Nokia PC Suite

Install PC Suite, connect your device with the USB cable, and make sure your PC can access your device. Leave PC Suite running with the device connected throughout the session.


Checkout PJSIP from the usual location (see PJSIP Download page for details). Fill in your config_site.h with:

#include <pj/config_site_sample.h>

Setting up PJSIP Carbide Project

Run Carbide

Run Carbide C++. When it asks the workspace location, just accept the default value and press OK button:

You will now be presented with Carbide Welcome page.

Import PJSIP Projects

Now we need to import PJSIP's project files (the MMP files) into Carbide's workspace.
