WAP - Wireless Application Protocol

Introduction and getting started

What is WAP?

Wireless Application Protocol or WAP is an accepted, open industry standard that allows wireless devices to access information and services on the Internet. WAP operates over almost all wireless phone networks including those built under GSM and CDMA technologies. Basically, a handset sends a request, using WAP protocol, to a special WAP gateway server. Upon interpretation of the address or URL in the request, the content is fetched by the gateway and transferred via WAP to the handset. Digital wireless user agents such as mobile phones have become very popular in recent years. Technically speaking, mobile phones are no longer just phones, they are communication devices capable of running applications and communicating with other devices and applications over a wireless network. Based on existing Internet technology such as XML and IP, WAP allows the supply of Internet content and Internet services to wireless clients, WAP devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs, pagers, two-way radios, smart phones, communicators and terminals.

Getting Started....
With just a few simple steps you can have your WAP site up and running!

What you need to get started:
1. A WML editor. Notepad is optimal for writing a WML site. However, if you are unfamiliar with WML, there are more complex editors available. e.g. Dreamweaver 3.0 and Waptor 

2. A place to store your WML files. You will need a website that is capable of serving WML content. ammonet Economy, Business and Professional Accounts are WAP enabled. 

3. A way of getting your files to your server. You can upload your new WML pages with an FTP client, such as WS_FTP or FrontPage. 

4. A way to test and view your site. If you do not have a WAP enabled device, the next best thing is an emulator. ammonet will shortly have a WAP emulator on-line. 

Step 1. 
Open your notepad program or WML editor. To begin you need to make a 'deck'. A deck is composed of 'cards' (Refer to our glossary of WAP terms and WAP FAQs). Below is a sample deck. 

<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml"> 

<card id="card1" title="ammonet WAP TEST CARD 1"> 
<do type=accept" label="To card 2"> 
<go href="#card2"/> 
Welcome to WML!! 

<card id="card2" title="ammonet WAP TEST CARD 2"> 
<do type=accept" label="Back to card 1"> 
<go href="#card1"/> 
Welcome to Card 2 

Step 2. 
Save your document with a .wml file extension to your local drive. 

Step 3. 
Open your FTP client and ftp to your server. Next upload your .wml file to your server in ASCII format. You may also upload your files with Frontpage or another editor of your choice. 

Step 4. 
Test your page. Your may do this by using your WAP device or with an emulator of your choice. AIT has provided an emulator to test your pages at http://wap.aitcom.net/emulator.htm. 

Congratulations you have just completed your first WAP site!
