91.308 Assignment 9:
Intro to Palm OS Programming

out: Wed Apr 27 ——— due: Wed May 4

 

You may choose to work on this assignment on your own machine and/or in the Engaging Computing Lab (OS306). If you want to do all the work on your own, that's fine—you can test your work with the Palm emulator software.

If you want to see your work running on a real Palm handheld, then plan to do some work in OS306. There will be 8 machines set up with Palms and cradles.

All 91.308 students will be given 24x7 access via your ID card and the electronic door pad.

  1. Choose your development tools. I personally prefer command-line tools. For Palm, this is a port of gcc called PRC-Tools.

    The other option is the Palm OS Developer Suite (PODS), which is based on the open-source Eclipse IDE (from IBM) and the gcc/PRC-Tools package.

    See the course Palm OS resources page for download links.

  2. Read the excerpt from the Lonnon Foster book that was handed out in class. This explains how to use the PODS software, and introduces two HelloWorld sample applications.

  3. Compile/build Lonnon Foster's HelloWorld2 Palm application. Get it running on either a Palm emulator or a physical device.

  4. Change the application's creator code to some other 4-character value (not all lower-case, since those combinations are reserved by Palm).

  5. Now, extend it. Implement at least two new features. Choose from the following list, or invent something else of your own:

    • Split the name field into two fields (one for first name, one for last name), and have the “Say Hello” and “Say Goodbye” forms concatenate the two names.

    • Add a third form, button, and message (e.g., “Trash Talk Me”).

    • Add a new icon to the existing About Hello World 2 form.

    • Create a second About-this-application form, and add it to the Options menu.

    • Add a slider or other UI widget to the main screen, and have it do something when activated.

  6. Turn in your work by (a) zip or tar your source and your .prc application file into a single archive and put it in a reachable location on your CS account, (b) submit a hard copy cover sheet that gives a directory pointer to your work and explains in some detail what you did, and (c) on your write-up, indicate the 4-character value you chose for your application.
