This should incorporate content from MeeGo SDK Development Options
MeeGo applications are written in C++, Web technologies, and QML with tools provided by the MeeGo community:
Both SDKs integrate into the standard development process:
We take the image from www.meego.com/developers/Developer Story.
The MeeGo SDK is a tool that allows a developer to create binaries for a range of devices from a single code base. The SDK supports the simulation of MeeGo devices, so developers can create software without an actual MeeGo device. Currently, there are versions of MeeGo SDK for popular development platforms such as Linux and Windows.
MeeGo SDK supports on-device debugging, as well as debugging within a MeeGo simulator. This is integrated into the IDE so developers can step through their code, insert breakpoints, and carry out other standard debugging activities.
Web SDK supports debugging WRT applications within a simulated MeeGo device web runtime.
MeeGo SDK generates packages for deploying software to MeeGo devices. For example, when testing software on a MeeGo device from MeeGo SDK, the software is packaged, sent to the device and installed.
WRT applications for MeeGo are packaged using the standards-based W3C Widget Packaging and Configuration specification.
Once a MeeGo application has been packaged, it can be distributed in different ways. One approach is to use the infrastructure supplied by the MeeGo project for the distribution of free, open-source applications; another approach is to submit the package to an application store.
