Description - Wireless Web Development by Ray Rischpater
Wireless Web Development, Second Edition, provides a substantial business and engineering background for wireless developers, covering facets of wireless Web software development for today's mobile platforms. Today's wireless technologies - including wireless HTML, WAP 2.0, XML, Palm's WCA, and iMode - are discussed in detail, with examples of each. Moreover, Ray Rischpater places a special emphasis on the differences between the Web and the wireless Web, helping the reader understand the engineering and human interface issues that they must address when creating wireless Web applications. By providing details about technologies that have emerged since the first edition was written (iMode, the growing emphasis on XML in wireless, and WAP 2.0), as well as relegating to historical status those technologies that have failed the test of time (Microsoft Mobile Channels and HDML), the book improves on the first edition.
