The Wireless Application Protocol and a Wireless Markup Language Browser in Java
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This is a report of a master's thesis project. The research has been carried out at a research unit of the Swedish telecom/datacom company Ericsson. The main purpose of the master's thesis project was to design and implement a Wireless Markup Language Browser in the Java programming language.
Java seems to suit this task in many ways: it has a compact bytecode rep- resentation, Unicode support, and support for dynamic class loading. The Java execution environment is also currently being adapted to suit small devices with low computational power.
This report also shows how Wireless Application Protocol Forum (WAP Fo- rum) works in the area of creating protocols and APIs that suit cellular services, mainly by introducing lightweight protocols and compressed trans- port formats. The introduction of WAP services into a GPRS network is also discussed, and the result is that the WAP gateway should be on the edge of the GPRS network and that IP should be the bearer for the WAP service.
