QtMobility 1.1 / WindowsXP / Messaging Framework and MinGW
I want using Messaging API from QMF, but inside "documentation":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.1.0/installation.html i found this notice:
Note that messaging functionality will not work if you are using the MinGW compiler.
Why QMF don't like MinGW?
bq. While not supported for this release the desktop Windows backend requires that a MAPI subsystem is installed.
Based on this I would say that QMF depends on MAPI and the MAPI subsystem (used by outlook) cannot be used with MinGW.
so we should all switch to linux ? :)
At least switch away from Windows.
It can be portable to all platform where can work Qt, if QMF developers be use QTcpSocket + custom RFC implementation instead call OS API. :(
From a maintenance point of view it makes sense calling the OS/vendor API, especially when it concerns closed protocols.
