Get ready for the next wave Internet and learn to create Javaservlets for handheld WAP browsers
To join the wireless Internet revolution, programmers will need towrite Web applications for the #1 wireless standard, the WirelessApplication Protocol (WAP). Bringing together the two technologiesessential for modern WAP development--servlets and WML (WirelessMarkup Language)--this powerful book/CD package gives you acomplete set of tools for creating Java servlets for WAPbrowsers.
Expert John Cook guides you through all the necessary steps andcode examples, demonstrating in detail how Sun Microsystems JavaServlet Development Kit (JSDK) and WML can be used to developdynamic Web content for a variety of handheld devices.
With an emphasis on features and techniques useful to the WAPservlet developer, Cook provides:
An introduction to WAP software architecture
Step-by-step WML, including examples, screenshots, and how tobuild a WML home page
The most useful methods of JSDK classes/interfaces plus areal-world example of a WAP servlet
An overview of WAP push technology, including the Push AccessProtocol (PAP)
How to acquire, install, and setup the various developmentenvironments and phone SDKs
Appendices covering WML 1.2 and JSDK 2.1.1, and how to implementservlet engines on HTTP servers
The CD-ROM contains the JSDK, Phone.Com's SDK, Nokia's SDK, andother useful public domain software.
