Introduction to WAP using WML, ASP and PHP - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

As you can see from the examples in this article, we've quite easily developed our first wireless application using WML, ASP, and PHP.

Wireless applications offer some degree of speciality, meaning that not all web sites will find their niche within the wireless technology market. On the other hand, you need one version of you site as HTML for normal web browsers, one for WAP enabled devices (WML), and maybe even another in HTML 3.2 format for PDA's, which can be a pain.

If you do decide to implement a WAP compatible version of your web site, then it's clear that development and maintenance costs will quickly begin to add up.

In my next article I will show you how to deal with multi-device support for a wireless applications. Until then, take a look at the books and links below for more information on WAP, WML, WMLScript, etc.
