This just about wraps up this brief introduction to developing WAP-based sites using WML. We took a look at some of the fundamental aspects of WML, including cards and decks, WMLScript, and building our very own WML-based resume site. While we didn’t cover the entire development process of the resume site, we covered enough to tickle your curiosity, and further enhance your own site.
As you can see building a WML-based site is not very much different from building an HTML/XHTML-based website, apart from a few minor changes in the setup. The one advantage of WAP sites is that they are very small and, at times, very quick to create. While we haven’t covered nearly as many elements, functions, and libraries that encompass the WML language, you’ll definitely be able to walk away with enough to get started. If you feel WML is something you can benefit from (in today’s world, having an extra item on your resume can definitely help), you can learn more from various resources listed below.
