Written by James Scott

Continued from page 1

WAP is about providing access to relevant information from any location - news, email, sports results and banking have all been successfully translated to WAP. End-to-end security is provided by WAP so applications such as Banking and Mobile Commerce are as safe as conventional E-Commerce sites. Intelligence can be added to your WAP applications by using WMLScript, which is similar to JavaScript.

Anyone can write WML content and upload it to a web server inrepparttar same way as publishing HTML pages. Server side scripting such as Perl, PHP, ASP, and Java Servlets can all be used to output dynamically created WML content. In many casesrepparttar 132071 hard work of creatingrepparttar 132072 backend ofrepparttar 132073 website has already been done andrepparttar 132074 WAP conversion is a relatively quick and painless process.

The constraints ofrepparttar 132075 WAP environment and tight syntax of WML are actually a blessing in disguise. Developers have much less scope to formatrepparttar 132076 layout of content compared to HTML design and thus deployment time is dramatically reduced.

Why choose WAP?

By choosing WAP you are building applications and services that are accessible across all WAP enabled Phones and Cellular networks (GSM, CDMA, TDMA and 3G inrepparttar 132077 future). You will reach a much wider audience asrepparttar 132078 number of Cellular phone users now exceeds that of Desktop PC users. WAP is an evolving technology that is capable of maturing asrepparttar 132079 wireless data industry evolves and is an extremely powerful tool to extend your website's reach beyondrepparttar 132080 conventional Desktop PC.
