Book description
WAP, the Wireless Application Protocol, has managed to achieve fame and infamy in roughly equal parts as "the Internet on your mobile phone" - a claim that has not matched the experience of some early users. Used well, however, WAP has enormous potential: the attraction of using existing Internet infrastructure to deliver timely information and services to mobile devices is undeniable, and WAP offers exciting opportunities to those writing applications for it. Beginning WAP provides a complete tutorial in the creation of WAP applications using the two languages defined for the purpose: WML, the Wireless Markup Language, and its companion ...

Once again an excellent job by the nutshell folks. Intended for system administrators who need to set up and maintain UUCP connections or access Usenet, the book realizes that in the UNIX world many sysadmins are just plain folks. The necessary technical details are here, but presented in a logical and non-threatening manner. Not limiting themselves to the UNIX software, the authors provide hardware guidance as well, particularly to those with Intel boxes. Chapters two and three deal not only with the basic operations and configuration of UUCP, but also with cabling, ports and modems. The material gives enough detail but does not go on to flaunt knowledge of unnecessary trivia. Further chapters give information on testing a... Rest of this review on the detail page
