Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The wireless revolution has touched off a huge demand for Palm OS network applications. But information on how to connect a Palm is fragmented across dry function listings in the SDK documentation, a couple of book chapters, some sample code, and a few articles on the Palm web site (each of which assumes prior knowledge of network applications).Palm OS Network Programming pulls all the necessary elements together in the first complete guide to developing network applications for the Palm Computing Platform. The author assumes knowledge of Palm programming in C, but no network experience is required. You'll learn Palm network concepts such as transport protocols and client-server applications from the ground up, clearly illustrated with examples using Metrowerks CodeWarrior development environment.The Palm Net Library, essential to any network application development, gets the detailed treatment it deserves, with sample network applications demonstrating how to make the best use of this powerful system library.Palm OS Network Programming is the first complete developer's resource to building creative--and connected--applications for the fastest-growing platform of the 21st century.

Book News Annotation:

This book shows how to develop network applications for the Palm Computing platform, detailing all major concepts needed and providing examples of the two major development environments, Metrowerks CodeWarrior and GCC. The book examines the Palm Net Library and offers sample networking applications to illustrate how to make the best use of it. Though no network experience is assumed, the book will be most valuable to developers who have written Palm applications in C.
