This is an intermediate-level guide to building WAP applications. The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) provides the technological framework for combining mobile communications with Internet technologies. WAP opens up the Web to a vastly expanded audience, allowing new types of applications to take advantage of user location, provide time-critical information, and offer personalized content. This book details the WAP Forum, mobile devices, and what makes a good WAP application. Using real world examples, this book examines the WAP standards, focusing on those essential to building working WAP applications. It outlines the critical success factors in designing WAP applications and helps the reader select the right architecture for his or her WAP project. Complete tutorials on WML (the HTML of wireless web), WMLScript, and Push technology are combined with the many examples to make Practical Wap ideal for software developers, architects, and managers.
