Overview

Learn how to build databases on personal digital devices to be used with PDA applications

Several years ago, the business community accepted the Internet as a viable solution to extending the corporate environment. Today, there is another movement towards enhancing this methodology-- empowering mobile wireless business users with increasingly powerful PDAs.

Robert Laberge and Srdjan Vujosevic have written the first book ever to cover mobile database development. They discuss the many methods of connecting to the Internet, Intranet, or a specific computer and how they are all viable business solutions for today's large, medium, and small corporations.

In addition, they offer detailed discussions of such topics as:
* Basics of the mobile wireless environment, including a quick view of WAP technology and an overview of PDAs and their environments
* The client-server methodology-what it is and how it applies to PDAs
* Data warehousing-centralizing departmental information for everyone in an organization to access
* Palm as a whole, in addition to Pocket PC from Microsoft
* Tools needed for building an application to access data on a PDA
* The Sybase solution to PDA databases-the components from Sybase, and an example using specific pieces of the offering
* IBM's DB2 solution-a discussion on the components, and an easy-to-follow application using the components

The companion Web site contains all the source code for the sample applications in the book.
