A tutorial for developing eSWT Midlets on Nokia S60 smartphones

There is a new tutorial in developerWorks about developing eSWT midlets. Tutorial explains how to develop eSWT based midlet applications using newly released Eclipse Mobile Tools for Java (MTJ) and Nokia's S60 3rd Ed. FP2 SDK. Author, Peter Nehrer, does a really good job explaining the basics of eSWT, Java ME Midlets and S60 platform. The result is an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to start developing eSWT based applications on Nokia S60 platform.

Please let me know if you are interested.
