Good, Easy t Understand Intro to WAP and WML - & CD is good!, May 17, 2001
Reviewer: A reader
Very readable and technically very accurate.

Starts off quite simply (first few chapter very easy to understand) then get's moving quickly by building a WAP/WML application step by step.

Does a good job job explaining

- WAP Architecture - Differences between a PDA's User Agent and an Emulaor (MicroBrowser) used on a PC - Differemces (to some degree) beteeen the WAP SDK's so users are not confused when their screens look a bit different to the ones in the book.

Also lists some very excellent products to use, such as Emulators, SDK's, XML and WML Editors etc.

For example, lists

- simple but very easy to use Klondike Freeware WML Emulator (but has no WMLScript support in current version ...).

- M3 Gate Emulator suggested is the best available. Great product

- HAs a Sybex branded version of a nifty little WML Editor called "WaPPLE" (great name) which is also FREEWARE - a nice personal touch. Very simple to use WML Editor will all WML Tags, Syntax Coloring etc like HTML Editors HTMLEditPro or HomeSite, - but easier to use

- Suggests OPera as a possible dual HTML and WML Browser, but in my experiance Opera 5 still a few tweaks yet to work perfectly with WML, but never-the-less a good suggestion.

Overall a good book - and not too expensive unlike others.
