Chapter / Book - 01.08.2003
The Java™-developer of 'Arbeitskreis Java™ München' published valuable experience and knowledge from practice in the German book 'Java™ praxisnah - Profitieren Sie von Programmierprofis'.
The book "Java™ praxisnah" introduces new technologies and shows how these technologies are implemented successfully.
Especially the domain of mobile data communication is error-prone. Most developers equate mobile data communication with cable bound communication. Main difference: the missing cable!
This simple approach leads to some imponderable risks in projects. And obviously, the mobile network bears the blame... The chapter 'Mobile Datenkommunikation' in 'Java™ Praxisnah' proves the opposite. The chapter names and describes shortly the Java™ communication methods and draws one surprising conclusion: all are based on TCP/IP as communication protocol.
However, especially TCP/IP has some features leading to heavy problems in mobile environments. The source examples show how to treat these features and to avoid the trap doors.
