Get ready for the next wave Internet and learn to create Java servlets for handheld WAP browsers
To join the wireless Internet revolution, programmers will need to write Web applications for the #1 wireless standard, the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP). Bringing together the two technologies essential for modern WAP development--servlets and WML (Wireless Markup Language)--this powerful book/CD package gives you a complete set of tools for creating Java servlets for WAP browsers.
Expert John Cook guides you through all the necessary steps and code examples, demonstrating in detail how Sun Microsystems Java Servlet Development Kit (JSDK) and WML can be used to develop dynamic Web content for a variety of handheld devices.
With an emphasis on features and techniques useful to the WAP servlet developer, Cook provides:
* An introduction to WAP software architecture
* Step-by-step WML, including examples, screenshots, and how to build a WML home page
* The most useful methods of JSDK classes/interfaces plus a real-world example of a WAP servlet
* An overview of WAP push technology, including the Push Access Protocol (PAP)
* How to acquire, install, and setup the various development environments and phone SDKs
* Appendices covering WML 1.2 and JSDK 2.1.1, and how to implement servlet engines on HTTP servers
The CD-ROM contains the JSDK, Phone.Com's SDK, Nokia's SDK, and other useful public domain software.
