DPCRadio Web services for consumer devices
September 07, 2010 @ 07:18:36

On the Ibuildings techPortal there's a new post with the latest episode in their DPCRadio series (as recorded at this past Dutch PHP Conference) - Melanie Rhianna Lewis' talk on web services and consumer devices.

A web service is an API provided by a site that allows a remote application to access data and use functionality without having to 'act like a web browser'. [...] The talk will describe how a web service targeted at consumer devices can be implemented. It will look at the different methods of calling remote functionality such as SOAP, XML-RPC, JSON and restful services. It will also consider the limitations of consumer devices, memory restrictions, communications bandwidth restrictions, and so on that have to be considered when designing a web service aimed at consumer devices. Finally it will have a brief look at how to make a service secure.

You can find the slides for the session here and you can either listen to the episode through the in-page player or buy downloading the mp3 directly.

An Easy Way to Detect Mobile Devices
August 11, 2010 @ 08:24:35

On the These Days blog there's a recent post talking about creating a mobile version of your site and how you can detect if the visitor is using a mobile browser or not using WURFL.

WURFL, The Wireless Universal Resource File (WURFL) is an open source project which collects information about all of the different mobile devices in use. It is constantly being updated, so as long as you keep your WURFL definitions up-to-date you don't have to worry about your detection scripts not recognising new devices. By querying a WURFL database with your visitor's User Agent string, you can not only determine whether the device they are using is a mobile device, but whether it has a touch screen, can make phone calls, is a tablet (iPad) and more.

They include a snippet of code that uses the Tera-WURFL service and a call to getCapabilitiesFromAgent to see what kind of client is making the requests and what it supports.

SymbianOne.com:
Your S60 Web server gets a boost
December 21, 2007 @ 11:14:00

Michael Kimsal points out an article posted recently concerning a new feature of the Symbain OS for mobile phones - a web server that could support PHP and MySQL.

From the article:

Jukka on the S60 Blogs is reporting that PHP and mySQL are going to be available for S60 devices in early 2008. [...] I (Johan Wikman) can now reveal that we at the CCNC conference in Las Vegas in January, 2008 will demonstrate and release what we call the PAMP stack.

The PAMP stack stands for "Personal Apache, MySQL, PHP" and will be included in the S60 smartphones and makes it possible to install most PHP applications (that use MySQL) right off the shelf. Developers of several GTD-type applications are reported to already be in testing on the new platform.
