.Net Wireless Programming
You'll learn to take advantage of the Mobile Internet Toolkit's automated deployment capabilities, which enable a single site or application to work with nearly any mobile device. Freed from the task of writing code to accommodate various devices, you'll be able to apply other skills to build a more powerful application: Work with styles and templates. Create custom controls. Read from and write to databases. And use Microsoft's Web Services in support of a distributed architecture.
Five case studies, including a mobile intranet, a contacts database, and an online game, illustrate solutions to real problems and techniques for maximizing application flexibility. A set of appendices provide detailed information on the WML language and the Toolkit's classes. This book presents its many code examples in Visual Basic .NET, but the greater emphasis is on Visual Studio .NET and the flexibility it gives developers in choosing the language they want to use.
