Seems like they tried very hard to get the book out very fast to capitalize on the "WAP craze" that was happening a year or so ago. It shows -- it's incomplete, inconsistent, poorly written, and even full of typos. Try "Dynamic WAP application development" instead, it's more complete and better written.

This is the best way to get really confused before writing your first WAP application. Try Ben Forta. Application programmers need a simplified architecture showing what is relevant to their task. This book is not relevant to my task. I regret I bought it.

this was one of the first complete WAP books. The book covers all the begining and advanced topics. I recommend this book to someone with good previous knowledge of web development.

I consider this book to be the best for giving introduction about all the aspects of WAP. I guess the title "Professional" misled the people. This book is very nicely laid out and contents are good. (The)... examples are not all that great in some of the chapters. For instance examples in Java, ASP, JSP areas are great but in the push/pull technology chapters, there are no examples at all.
Still this gave me very good insight of WAP and helped me to finish my first project on WAP.
I would definitely recommend this to any beginner to WAP. For others, this is not the book.

I took 3 hours this past weekend to quickly read through this one and decided to send it back. Each of the sections doesn't work with the others & I didn't find the sample applications very helpful. It's got a great deal of information, it just needs to be organized more clearly.

Although I approached this book with skepticism, tending to believe that fat books usually contain more fluff than content, I actually liked it. I understood _what_ WAP was and how it works, and, after a couple of hours toying around with WML, it took me some small part of an otherwise busy day at work to add a WAP face to a small part of the HTTP interface of Ovrimos SQL Server. I had to discover alone, though, how WAP handles 401 responses (it prompts for credentials) and 302 redirections (the Ericsson 320 emulator fails to handle it). I'm left with quite some work to do (to check it with an actual WAP gateway, if possible). I believe the book should have more details on the interaction of HTTP and WAP, not just when everything goes ok (200 Ok, to be exact). Another obvious omission on the subject of dynamically generated WML content, was PHP. PHP probably amounts to a lot more content than JSP does, and will be put in good use when WAP takes off, too. All in all, I'm quite happy with the book, and I wasn't isappointed with "GTK+/Gnome Programming" either. I'll surely keep an eye on Wrox books in the future, and it's quite a change for a person that didn't buy anything that didn't have "Addison-Wesley" or "O'Reilly" on it.
