About this book

Wireless Web Development, Second Edition provides both a substantial engineering and business background to wireless developers, covering numerous facets of wireless web software geared toward today's mobile platforms and mobile devices. Wireless technologies, including wireless HTML, WAP 2.0, XML, Palm's WCA, and i-mode, are discussed in detail, with individual chapters devoted to each. Author and industry veteran Ray Rischpater places special emphasis on the differences between the Web and the wireless Web, and even between wireless devices themselves, helping the reader to better understand the engineering and interface issues that must be addressed when creating wireless web applications.

By providing the latest information about technologies that have emerged since the first edition was published (i-mode, 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), Rischpater offers readers a comprehensive and completely updated guide to the latest wireless technologies and development strategies.
