This book is a comprehensive tutorial that is logically organized, up-to-date, and includes coverage of the most popular wireless programming language, WML.
Readers create a working application, developing examples that build from one chapter to the next. With each chapter readers are learning, practicing, and building on required skills necessary not only for wireless development, but also programming in general. By the end of the book, readers will have created a wireless database application that allows them to view, enter, and delete information.
The book provides a usable reference of summaries on all languages discussed within the book, as well as a comparison of the wireless devices, and different development tools on the market today.
