It's not a how-to book, it's a 'what and why' book. And becauseit names names as it unwinds the design decisions which have shapedthe OS, it is also a 'who' book. It will show where the OS camefrom, how it has evolved to be what it is, and provide a simplemodel for understanding what it is, how it is put together, and howto interface to it and work with it. It will also show why designdecision were made, and will bring those decisions to life in thewords of Symbian's key architects and developers, giving an insiderfeel to the book as it weaves the "inside story" around thearchitectural presentation.
The book will describe the OS architecture in terms of theSymbian system model. It will show how the model breaks down thesystem into parts, what role the parts play in the system, how theparts are architected, what motivates their design, and how thedesign has evolved through the different releases of thesystem.
Key system concepts will be described; design patterns will beexplored and related to those from other operating systems. Theunique features of Symbian OS will be highlighted and theirmotivation and evolution traced and described.
The book will include a substantial reference section itemisingthe OS and its toolkit at component level and providing a referenceentry for each component.
