PRESS RELEASE -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
=======================================

Manning Publications announces the release of:
Dynamic WAP Application Development
By Soo Mee Foo, Christopher Hoover, Wei Meng Lee

A V A I L A B L E A U G U S T 2 0 0 1
Greenwich, CT - The universal, open standard for the delivery of
Internet
content and services to mobile phones and other wireless devices is
WAP-the
Wireless Application Protocol. With WAP breathlessly hyped as the "next
revolution" in technology (and sometimes just as vigorously vilified),
it
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
applications.
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
Markup
Language), the language used by the majority of the Internet-enabled
phones
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
with
each of these languages, the book examines the issues involved in
converting
HDML documents to WML.
The book provides an overview of Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP)
and
Java Servlets and guides developers through the process of creating
dynamic
WAP applications using these server-side technologies. Application
design
specific to the small display and limited memory capacity of wireless
phones
is also covered. Advanced topics include security, performance, and the
intricacies of WAP gateways. The book also includes robust case studies
that
put WAP concepts into practice. This book is geared for developers who
are
called upon to extend existing Web services to wireless phone
subscribers
and for those who need to understand the resources involved in the
development and deployment of WAP applications.
For a closer look at Dynamic WAP Application Development, Manning
offers
components of the book online: the table of contents, two sample
chapters,
the index and source code can be viewed at www.manning.com/foo.
Manning's
Author Online forums are becoming recognized as valuable places for
readers
to pose questions to authors and to discuss with them topics related to
their books. Found at the book's web page, Author Online is open to all
visitors, including those who do not own the book.
For developers in a hurry, Manning titles are also published as PDF
ebooks
that contain the complete text and illustrations of the printed
editions,
plus a linked index and bookmarks to every entry in the Table of
Contents.
They can be purchased from the publisher's website at a substantial
saving
off the printed version price. The ebook price is subtracted from the
price
of a subsequent purchase of the same book in hardcopy from Manning's
site.
Soo Mee Foo has a Master's degree in Computer Science with
specialization in
parallel programming and artificial intelligence. She also conducts
workshops on Web and WAP application development to IT professionals.
She
lives in Singapore, where she is a lecturer at a polytechnic.
Christopher Hoover manages platform technologies for Openwave Systems,
Inc.,
an industry leader in wireless web technology and co-founder of the WAP
forum. He currently resides in San Francisco.
Wei Meng Lee has a Computer Science degree from the National University
of
Singapore. His interest is in web technologies and he conducts training
for
Visual Basic and web developers. He lives in Singapore.
