This dev guide presents (hundreds of) active server pages that connect to web clippings that change everything you thought you could do with a Palm.
I can now retrieve files (any file) from my PC using my Palm -- it's cool. I ran the demo to place a file I had left at home onto my PC at the office using my Palm! My boss was watching and made me install the program on his Palm. It was cool.
The book does a myriad of things with ASP -- but it does them not only from Web clippings, but also from within Palm OS programs that interact with pages using the network library.
This is the best Palm Programming book I have found. Period! Others show you how to do simple things -- this book shows you how to turn the Palm into a notebook PC.
I also learned how to convert AVI video files for use on the Palm. (Consumes quite a bit of memory -- but makes a great demo).
The book shows ways a PQA can upgrade itself--by testing if a newer version is available when the user starts the Web clipping. The code works -- is easy -- all PQAs should use it.
The book also shows how the user can build a custom PQA. Cool!
Accessing my home PC was easy (no firewall). I changed the Active Server Page code some to work in the firewall environment at my office.
Good stuff. The apps port easily to other handhelds such as the PocketPC
This is the best the Web clipping content I have found. They should have called it Palm Web Clipping Deveoper's Guide. I'm very glad I found it.
