Java WAP Browser Unveiled

Digital Airways Wednesday unveiled Wapaka, a Wireless
Application Protocol (WAP) microbrowser written in
Java.


The company said the microbrowser is designed
specifically to work with GSM and GPRS wireless
systems, and Bluetooth and infrared for short-range
transmissions.


Initially designed for the Palm OS, the
company said Java enables it to be easily ported to
other operating systems. The company said it is also
customizable by specific wireless operators, portals and
device vendors.


Wapaka features a multi-session, multi-window
environment so users can open more than one WAP
site at a time.


The company previously developed a
WAP simulator that enables vendors to show
wireless-enabled sites in standard Web browsers.
