Greenwich, CT - The universal, open standard for the delivery of
content and services to mobile phones and other wireless devices is
Wireless Application Protocol. With WAP breathlessly hyped as the "next
revolution" in technology (and sometimes just as vigorously vilified),
can be hard to figure out what WAP really can-and cannot--do for the
real-world developer and for the end-user.
This comprehensive guide to building dynamic Web sites for wireless use
provides developers with the necessary skills to develop WAP
Dynamic WAP Application Development first introduces the Wireless
Application Protocol (WAP) and offers an in-depth explanation of the
prominent wireless languages. These include HDML (Handheld Device
Language), the language used by the majority of the Internet-enabled
in the United States and Japan; WML (Wireless Markup Language), the
XML-based successor to HDML; and WMLScript, the client-side scripting
language of the wireless world that allows the developer to include
procedure logic in an application. In addition to hands-on practice
each of these languages, the book examines the issues involved in
HDML documents to WML.
The book provides an overview of Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP)
Java Servlets and guides developers through the process of creating
WAP applications using these server-side technologies. Application
specific to the small display and limited memory capacity of wireless
is also covered. Advanced topics include security, performance, and the
intricacies of WAP gateways. The book also includes robust case studies
put WAP concepts into practice. This book is geared for developers who
called upon to extend existing Web services to wireless phone
and for those who need to understand the resources involved in the
development and deployment of WAP applications.
