Can you rephrase the question?  I'm not sure what you are asking.

 

If you are asking if experience using Qt helps, the answer is definitely, but it's not a pre-requisite for learning cascades.

Re: How much Nokia QT experience help in Cascades Development

Yes i was asking the first part of your answer. But how much?? One more QML with Javascript or QML with QT which one is good.

Take what experience you have.   Are you asking because you are hiring someone but don't know what employee you need? Or asking to get some idea of the what Cascades QML is like?  Or asking because you are not sure you are ready to try it?

 

If you are strong in Qt QML you will find QML natural, but there are differences.  If you are strong in Javascript, you will tend to do some event handling (onClick etc) in Javascript.  If you are strong in C++ and Qt, you will define some UI structure in QML augmented by C++ code, using signals and slots.

 

Have a look at https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/

Download the sample apps and look at cascadescookbookqml and cascadescookbookcpp, stampcollector, cowbell, and others.  This should give you a good feel to what skills you can exploit.

Re: How much Nokia QT experience help in Cascades Development

No I am not hiring any one.  I was asking because I am going to start development in cascades.  I have gone through sample and document given at bb developer sites and nokia qt docs.  I have seen both the implementation (javascript & c++).  BB has given some wrapper on the original (compare with nokia QT/QML) so little bits confuse either go with the QML+Javascript &QML+C++.

Re: How much Nokia QT experience help in Cascades Development

My preferred approach is to use QML for structure and basic behaviour, C++ for more delicate or custom UI, and (separate) C++ for data model and non-UI behaviour.  Others prefer to do all UI in QML.  It's really up to you where you divide your software, and depends a bit both on your app and on your own skills and preferences.

Re: How much Nokia QT experience help in Cascades Development

Just one more doubt here (instead to open new Thread). Is it possible to get update of the SDK & IDE by using eclipse updates because currently whenever new updates has come we have to download entire SDK again and install 

Thanks
