Server-Side Content Management

  • Ray Rischpater


Managing content for the wireless Web brings complexity above and beyond a tra ditional Web site. Not only do you need to support static and dynamic content, but you also need to do so in a variety of formats. With today’s proliferation of wireless devices, it is not unusual for a site to support Handheld Device Markup Language (HDML), Wireless Markup Language (WML), and two or three different dialects of HyperText Markup Language (HTML). You can use two technologies to address this challenge: server-side scripting or transcoding. With server-side scripting, you use scripts that determine the capabilities of the browser as it makes a request and then format the response appropriately. Using a special transcoding server, you provide one set of content and the transcoding server converts your content from one format to another.
