About this book

The enormous popularity of the World Wide Web can be attributed in large part to the fact that it is a dynamic, highly interactive medium. As web accessibility through wireless devices becomes increasingly popular, developers are challenged to maintain the high level of interactivity and flexibility that users are accustomed to on their personal computer browsers. Fortunately, this task isn't as daunting as it seems, as the language tools used to create conventional web pages can also be implemented in the wireless arena.

Wireless Web Development with PHP and WAP is the result of author Ray Rischpater's years of experience in both wireless development and PHP programming, and shows you how to make the most of both technologies to create scalable wireless applications. You'll also learn how to use MySQL with PHP to serve wireless content as you review examples drawn from real-world wireless applications. In addition to tackling the wireless Web's software development challenges, Rischpater examines equally important but often overlooked issues such as user interface design and optimizing wireless sites for presentation on today's screen phones.
