Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Wireless designers face the challenge of achieving their vision in the limited environment offered by devices like cell phones and PDAs. Recommended for all public libraries, Usability Handbook modifies advice found in web usability guides (see Computer Media, LJ 5/1/02) for the wireless environment, focusing on how wireless devices work and how best to design for them. Chapter summaries and discussion questions aid understanding; the CD-ROM includes WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) emulators and templates. Larger public libraries can consider the next two guides: for beginning wireless developers, WAP 2.0 discusses developing with WAP, then moves on to more advanced topics such as WMLScript, ASP, and connecting to databases. For more advanced developers, Wireless Java teaches wireless application development through step-by-step examples. The CD-ROM contains sample code.

From the Back Cover

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.

Chris Tull writes tutorials and technical articles each week for AnywhereYouGo to help developers further their expertise in creating wireless applications. An application consultant and freelance writer, his writing has appeared in numerous publications, including Texas Technology, inquiry, and Managing Automation. He is also an active member of the STC (Society of Technical Communication).
Chris has been involved in emerging technologies since mid-1990. Early in his career, he worked at Caver-Morehead Systems, where he was responsible for the integration of DBMS systems for companies such as Hewlett-Packard, EDS, and Texas Instruments. He also produced technical documentation for the company.

Format: Paperback
The title of this book is a blatant lie.
NOWHERE in this book does it cover WAP 2.0.
In appendix A, it clearly states the book is only about 1.1!
It covers the 1.1 version, which is now out of date.
Chris Tull is not to blame - he covered 1.1 wonderfully;
it's the publishers who were afraid of losing $$ that need to be very ashamed. Black eye for Que on this one!
Don't be fooled by the 4 star rating; 4 of 6 are duplicates!

It is so sad this book ships so late. It is no use for any developer to learn WML anymore, because WAP 2.0 and the future will be XHTML Mobile Profile, not WML.

I used this book to create a web site for WAP devices, during a university project.

Considering that this was my first WAP site, it looks very professional, and I think that Chris Tull deserve this success.

WAP 2.0 Development is a great book for its simplicity in explaining the arguments.

The only problem with this book is that it refers only to Windows systems (like Access DBMS) and it explains interaction between WML and APS instead of PHP, which is a very spread language of scripting server-side.

I suggest to buy this book if you don't have any programming skill in WML; if you know basic WML try to buy a more complete book on this argument.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the better books I have seen on developing wireless applications with WAP. I really enjoyed the layout of the information. The section on WMLScript is one of the most thorough I have seen. I would like to see further information regarding databases, ASP and WAP; but overall a great book.

Really enjoyed this book. The writing is clear and concise. The examples are good, and build on each other throughout the book. Excellent read for those getting started in wireless dev, or for that matter find themselves right in the middle of it!

Kind of dry reading, but has good examples. Very basic stuff, not really geared for newer phones. If you're looking for a starting point, this book might help. Great price!
