About the book:

Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) and its related technologies are emerging as the standard way of creating network-wise software for wireless computing devices, such as mobile telephones. Wrox Press's crack team of programmer-writers have put together a winner in Professional WAP. To a greater extent than any other WAP book on the market, this volume shows its readers how to do real work by using WAP, Wireless Markup Language (WML), WMLScript, and various toolkits and servers that ease wireless application development. Best of all, the authors realize that most folks working as WAP developers have Web roots; they explain their subjects in terms that anyone with a bit of HTML and Web-scripting (JavaScript or VBScript) background should be able to follow easily.

Aside from the overview sections that explain WAP technologies in broad terms, this book focuses on code. Readers see software literally "develop" through the course of each chapter, as the authors start out with a relatively simple illustration and build on it, adding features and demonstrating capabilities as they go along. Generally high-grade commentary accompanies the evolving code, so this book proves almost as useful away from the development workstation as at it. Overall, the book earns its price with its in-depth coverage of such important, firm standards as WMLScript, supplemented by less detailed--but still useful--attention to such ancillary technologies as VoiceXML. --David Wall

Topics covered: Development of software for mobile telephones and other portable devices with Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), Wireless Markup Language (WML), WMLScript, Active Server Pages (ASP), ColdFusion, Java, and other languages and technologies. Task-oriented sections deal with the specifics of working with e-mail in WAP applications, integration of WAP with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), and content pushing.
