We introduce wireless platform because it has been deployed by customers in the business-to-business, business-to-enterprise and business-to-consumer markets. We think this technology provides a flexible, extensible and scalable architecture for our wireless initiative.
Our technology provides open, standards-based, back-end integration, enabling new and existing applications to support all wireless networks, devices, protocols and markup languages.
Today, wireless applications are utilized by many major corporations and are part of their core business processes. Wireless applications can provide major competitive advantages to those who use them. Applications ranging from something as simple as remote personnel sending/receiving data to/from a central location to corporate executives making real-time business decisions utilizing PDA's and other hand held devices are commonplace.
The ClickServices Mobile Application Server makes available multilingual,
advanced wireless communication, messaging, content management, application
integration and transactional capabilities to businesses such as those using the
iPlanet(TM) Application Server. The iPlanet Application Server is a J2EE(TM)
technology compliant application infrastructure that is rated number one by
DH Brown Associates for its scalability, reliability and availability.
It demonstrates the power of Java technology for large-scale e-business
solutions. Users of the iPlanet Application Server 6.0 will be able to
purchase a Mobile Application Server Upgrade from ClickServices to
install on top of their existing iPlanet Application Server.
We use Wireless Markup Language to make our Web apps accessible from a mobile phone. Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is a protocol that allows mobile phones and other wireless devices to connect to the Internet. Conceptually we can think of this as being similar to HTTP.....more
You might be wondering why WML and WAP are even necessary. Why not just stick with HTML and HTTP, which are already universally available? Some mobile devices do, in fact, use subsets of HTML, and you can also access WML through an ordinary HTTP server. But to really take advantage of what the new wireless network and mobile devices have to offer, WML and WAP are necessary to get by limitations of technologies that were designed for desktop environments. Keep in mind that handheld devices work very differently from desktop computers. They have less powerful CPUs, less memory, smaller displays, and limited input capabilities. Wireless data networks also have less bandwidth, less predictable availability, and less connection stability than the typical home or office network.
Consumers will use wireless technology to be informed of events or circumstances that effect their daily lives. Whether that's a change in the [stock] market or responding to important email, wireless phones will be used to stay connected......more
As wireless intelligent networks are built and third-party databases are connected, the wireless device will become a thin client used to command and control information, conduct transactions, and [keep us] informed of events that impact our business and our lives. There is no question that the vast information of the internet will continue to converge with the wireless world, but consumers will choose a means of least resistance and use the phone to receive timely information, make simple transactions, and be informed by location-relevant content.
Our next enhancements will give users the ability to conduct transactions. I guarantee the enhancements won't be rudimentary. The next release of WebWirelessNow will have some cool new capabilities that will allow you buy anything you see or hear on the radio or TV by just pushing talk on your cell phone.
We can access much of the capabilities of the Internet from web-enabled cell phones, PDAs, Palm and Handspring devices, in fact any item with a WAP browser can utilize information published on the Internet.
we can now view any web site or information on the Internet via your cell phone, Data placed on the web needs to be written in HDML (Handheld Device Markup Language), or WML (Wireless Markup Language). WML is the new standard for Mobile Markup Languages, as it is a sub-application of XML (Extensible Markup Language).
We need to code our web site in a special format for a WAP browser Two simple reasons: One reason is because you are using a smaller display. On a cell phone you are generally talking about 24 to 32 characters wide, and eight lines tall. For this reason most graphics and content are too large to display properly.
The second reason is because a cell phone of handheld device do not have the same memory and RAM capabilities as a desktop or laptop computer. A WAP browser supports WML which is a sub-application of XML. XML is only valid when all the syntax on the page is written correctly. Your typical web browser on your home or office computer allows for mistakes in code and tries to fix it for you. Typical browsers like Microsoft Internet Explorer are very forgiving. Due to the lack of memory and resources, your WAP browser can not allow to make corrections for bad code, therefore it must be written and validated in order to function properly.
