Programming Applications with the Wireless Application Protocol: The Complete Developer's Guide by Steve Mann
The official guide to programming universal Internet information access for hand-held wireless remote access devices. WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is the standard behind the new generation of wireless laptops, personal digital assistants, and other hand-held devices that allows universal access to data. Written with the support and cooperation of the team at Unwired Planet who created the standard, this third volume in the WAP series is the official WAP programming guide. Unwired Planet is the company behind two of the languages used to create the applications, HDML (Handheld Device Mark-up Language) and HDTP (Handheld Device Transport Protocol). Bruce Martin and Peter King of Unwired Planet wrote 80% of the WAP technology and will be serving as Consulting Editors to Mann on this book. It supplies intranet and wireless application developers with the complete, unabridged specification (on CD-ROM) and shows them, step-by-step, how to use it to write one program for all wireless networks, cell phones, and hand-held.
