Book Description: Get ready for the next wave Internet and learn to create Java servlets for handheld WAP browsers

To join the wireless Internet revolution, programmers will need to write Web applications for the #1 wireless standard, the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP). Bringing together the two technologies essential for modern WAP development––servlets and WML (Wireless Markup Language)––this powerful book/CD package gives you a complete set of tools for creating Java servlets for WAP browsers.

Expert John Cook guides you through all the necessary steps and code examples, demonstrating in detail how Sun Microsystems Java Servlet Development Kit (JSDK) and WML can be used to develop dynamic Web content for a variety of handheld devices.

With an emphasis on features and techniques useful to the WAP servlet developer, Cook provides:
• An introduction to WAP software architecture
• Step-by-step WML, including examples, screenshots, and how to build a WML home page
• The most useful methods of JSDK classes/interfaces plus a real-world example of a WAP servlet
• An overview of WAP push technology, including the Push Access Protocol (PAP)
• How to acquire, install, and setup the various development environments and phone SDKs
• Appendices covering WML 1.2 and JSDK 2.1.1, and how to implement servlet engines on HTTP servers
• The CD-ROM contains the JSDK, Phone.Com’s SDK, Nokia’s SDK, and other useful public domain software.

Book Info: Offers a complete set of tools for creating Java servlets for WAP browsers, by combining servlets and WML. The CD-ROM contains the JSDK,'s, SDK, Nokia's SDK, and other useful public domain software.

Customer Reviews
Neither WAP nor Servlets, but only a "Cookbook", April 5, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Highland Park, NJ USA

The author makes a good attempt at describing how Java Servlets could be used for a WAP application. Though the intention of the author is good, the examples are made unecessarily complicated to demostrate simple concepts that could confuse a beginner. The Servlet version used in this book is rather outdated (v2.1) and the discussion on WAP and WML is just enough to explain the examples specifically developed for this book. There is also a big chapter in this book explaining the outdated servlet 2.1 api.

Given the high cost of this book, the readers are better off buying a book on WAP and a book on Servlets separately. (Most of the books on Servlets discuss how to use XML with servlets.)

Excellent Introduction and Hands-on examples, April 21, 2001
Reviewer: Chad M. Smith from Yakima, WA United States

As a newcomer to WAP and Java Servlets, I found this book to be informative with an excellent introduction to both WAP/WML and Java Servlets. This book is written in such a way that its like the author is sitting right next to me to answer questions. This book contains lots of usable examples which I found very useful, sort of a cook book (no punn intended). I would recommend this book to the neophyte as well as the seasoned programmer.

Very helpful, March 1, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from Davie, FL

I found this book very helpful in getting started with WAP. The first couple of chapters had simple, easy to follow examples for accessing features of WML and servlets. I found the WAP web servlet example a great way to get started developing my own WAP site. Using this code and the servlet engine (included on the disk) I had a site up an running in a day!

WAP Servlets: Developing Dynamic Web Content With Java and W, February 24, 2001
Reviewer: Anurag from Wichita, KS USA

The book does an excellent job of explaining the concepts of wireless application protocols. But it is somewhat lacking in providing some good practical examples which users could try. For theoritical concepts, the book is amazing.
