By professional developers for professional developers. Andy and Dave wrote this seminal, classic book to help their clients create better software and rediscover the joy of coding. For over 20 years, the Pragmatic philosophy has spawned hundreds of our books, screencasts, audio books, and thousands of your careers and success stories.

The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) provides a universal open standard for bringing Internet content and advanced services to mobile phones and other wireless devices. Designed from the start to take account of the limitations of today's devices - small screen, low power and low bandwidth - WAP is the platform for the new generation of "media phones".

Professional WAP gives a broad overview of WAP and associated technologies - what it is, why it's useful and how to take the best advantage of it. It covers the WAP architecture and protocols, what WAP tools and servers are available for developers today and how to WAP-enable your web server. Practical examples will show you how to make content and services available over WAP using WML Decks and WMLScript. More advanced topics include administration, transactions, security, and integration of telephony with internet services (WTA).

The book is principally aimed at web developers who are experienced in HTML, scripting, probably some server-side technology, and who now want to find out how to apply their skills in the WAP world. It will also appeal to project managers, application architects or other professionals who want to gain an understanding of WAP technologies and how businesses could benefit from them.

Too many authors (there are 13) - rather jumbled (both on macro and micro levels).

An example on the macro level: information about "servelets" is spread over many many chapters, yet servelets are never really covered in the depth one might wish. An example of confusion on the micro level: in the middle of a discussion of HTML/WAP "translation" strategies, there's a comment about legal considerations of "deep-linking". (and this is relevant to the topic at hand _how_?) And an example of general confusion: "what's a JavaBean? something with i] a default no-argument constructor, ii] that's serializable, and iii] that uses standard get... and set... naming conventions". (and this dictionary definition is useful _how_? and what does it "really" mean in practice?)

The examples can't make up their mind whether they use a gateway, servelets, handcrafted content, or some other response method. The examples keep switching back and forth between different server technologies, even when they're trying to illustrate something on the client side to which server technology would seem irrelevant. The chapter summary that said the chapter had been about _both_ "architectures for JSP applications" and "generating XML" left me asking "shouldn't this have been two separate chapters?". When the same image reappears with a completely different caption and makes as much (or as little:-) sense as the first time, one realizes just how poor many of the flow diagrams are. And of course the index is quite short and very little help in finding anything.

Despite lots of apparent effort to reduce examples to the bare minimum (and comments about doing so), the book winds up being very code-heavy. So much so that by the end of a piece of example code I typically couldn't remember what the original point had been. Maybe this is what happens when coders are asked to write a book. Or maybe this is an unfortunate side effect of the verbosity of XML and XLT (remember when those were "coming" rather than "gone"?)

The link between feature phones and carriers is crucial, since recent experience has shown not-so-smart phones aren't very relevant to the world-wide-web that works for everybody else. Yet the market influence of the carriers isn't discussed at all. Of course both technology and the market have changed so much in the last dozen years this book's content is mostly of historical interest. I knew that in advance; I got the book anyway for a) an overview of how things _used_ to be and b) the beginnings of a reference. But the jumbled organization and writing make it marginal for those purposes too.

I suspect what I'll find most useful is the appendices, which seem to provide a complete yet concise reference to some older technologies like WMLScript and WTAI.

For those who know any web based programming languages, this book is for you. It gives you the scoop on WAP and what makes it tick. It presents the basic syntax of WAP in a fairly easy to understand format (put it this way, if you know HTML you practically know WAP). It also has an awesome section on how to integrate it with what you already know (In particular the Cold Fusion section was awesome! I leave it to those who know ASP, JSP, and XML to judge the other pieces).
In short, don't buy this if you're just starting web development, I would recommend you learn HTML and one server side language (ASP, ColdFusion, etc.). If you do that, then you're ready to learn WAP with this book and build some truly awesome stuff for the ever blooming wireless world!

This is my first book on Plain WAP and I found it very easy to use and to read! - I also bought the XML for Professionals by wrox which gave me a very good WML Background.
The writing style is absolutely excellent and gives clear tips on code optimization and performance. I have read literally dozens of different books on WAP, and none has been so specific. Although this book is not for total beginners, it is, in my opinion, good for anyone who wants to advance their career on the web or become an WML developer. This is definitely a book you will want to read from cover to cover, and use as a reference!

Although I approached this book with skepticism, tending to believe that fat books usually contain more fluff than content, I actually liked it. I understood _what_ WAP was and how it works, and, after a couple of hours toying around with WML, it took me some small part of an otherwise busy day at work to add a WAP face to a small part of the HTTP interface of Ovrimos SQL Server. I had to discover alone, though, how WAP handles 401 responses (it prompts for credentials) and 302 redirections (the Ericsson 320 emulator fails to handle it). I'm left with quite some work to do (to check it with an actual WAP gateway, if possible). I believe the book should have more details on the interaction of HTTP and WAP, not just when everything goes ok (200 Ok, to be exact). Another obvious omission on the subject of dynamically generated WML content, was PHP. PHP probably amounts to a lot more content than JSP does, and will be put in good use when WAP takes off, too. All in all, I'm quite happy with the book, and I wasn't isappointed with "GTK+/Gnome Programming" either. I'll surely keep an eye on Wrox books in the future, and it's quite a change for a person that didn't buy anything that didn't have "Addison-Wesley" or "O'Reilly" on it.

I consider this book to be the best for giving introduction about all the aspects of WAP. I guess the title "Professional" misled the people. This book is very nicely laid out and contents are good. (The)... examples are not all that great in some of the chapters. For instance examples in Java, ASP, JSP areas are great but in the push/pull technology chapters, there are no examples at all.
Still this gave me very good insight of WAP and helped me to finish my first project on WAP.
I would definitely recommend this to any beginner to WAP. For others, this is not the book.

Worx have once again come up trumps with this book - although not as biblical in usefullness as there Professional ASP Series this book is a excellent starting point for those new to WAP and an intersting read for those that are familiar with it or internet technologies and wish to get up to speed with this area. The only dissapointment is that there is no cd supplied with the book and many of the toolkits and SDK's that are essential for the succesfull development of WAP applications are quite large downloads. Overall a good buy and usefull for anyone interested in the area.

this was one of the first complete WAP books. The book covers all the begining and advanced topics. I recommend this book to someone with good previous knowledge of web development.
