.NET Mobile Web SDK: Build and Test Wireless Web Applications for Phones and PDAs

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Cell phones, PDAs, and other wireless devices that connect with the Internet enjoy growing popularity, making wireless applications more important and especially useful to companies with remote employees. This article presents an overview of the .NET Mobile Web SDK for building wireless apps. The technologies and design decisions that influence the development of mobile Web applications are discussed along with specific strategies for setting up a development environment using an emulator and building a real-world mobile Web application.

Windows Mobile Wireless Ad Hoc Networking Tutorial permalink

Despite what I've written earlier about it is better to get a wireless router and using infrastructure mode, there are still situations where adhoc mode might be useful. Imagine visiting a friend who has a notebook with wireless connection. He also has internet connection, and you'd like to check your emails. But he needs to work on something with his notebook. Internet connection sharing using ad hoc mode would be useful here.

And so, I've re-written the guide for Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows XP with SP2. The old version of the guide for Pocket PC 2002 is still accessible

Device detection: standard & mobile web applications


I would like to host standard web pages as well as mobile web pages on a single website/virtual directory.


Is there a simple way of sniffing out the machine type and then presenting either web or mobile application depending on the device?

Or is there a better solution other than creating separate website?

Many thanks

Test: Build Quick and Easy UI Test Automation Suites with Visual Studio .NET


The .NET Framework provides a surprising new way to quickly and easily create user interface test automation. By using objects in the System.Reflection and System.Threading namespaces, you can write automated tests in minutes instead of hours. This article walks you through the building of a typical Windows-based application that will be used as the test subject. The author then runs through the creation of a C#-based test tool that simulates clicking the test app's UI controls and checks the application's state. After the tool is built, the author explains in detail how it works so you can modify and extend it for your own use.

Wireless Web: Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit Lets Your Web Application Target Any Device Anywhere


If you've built Web sites using ASP.NET, you'll welcome the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT). MMIT extends the Visual Studio .NET IDE you already know by providing new controls for handheld devices letting you easily develop applications for wireless devices. This means you can write less code while adapting it to more devices. Not only does MMIT integrate with Visual Studio .NET, it extends ASP.NET as well. This article gives you the background you need to write, test, and deploy a site with MMIT and make all your code able to target specific devices for a custom fit.

COM+ Integration: How .NET Enterprise Services Can Help You Build Distributed Applications


The .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) is Microsoft's next-generation component technology. The CLR is a replacement for COM, but not for COM+. COM+, now called .NET Enterprise Services, is the Microsoft object runtime environment for scalable system development. This article explains how to implement and deploy COM+ configured classes using the CLR, how to access object context and call context, and the rules for managing context-relative object references. Also discussed are ways to manage precious resources such as data connections and pooled objects, and the relationship between COM+ and the new .NET remoting architecture.

Visual Studio .NET: Build Web Applications Faster and Easier Using Web Services and XML


Visual Studio .NET includes exciting features, some of which are enhancements to previous versions and some of which are brand new. A few of the most significant additions are the new Microsoft programming language called C#; a new, smarter integrated development environment; new object-oriented features in Visual Basic .NET; and development lifecycle tools. This article provides an overview of these features, as well as a look at Web Services, Web Forms, and new versions of ADO and ASP. It takes a first look at dozens of important new Visual Studio features that aid in the design, development, testing, and deployment of solutions built with Visual Basic, C++, Visual FoxPro, and C#.

Show web applications build version information



I would like to make the build information for the running web application but I dont know where I set or configure this nor do I know how to retrieve this information.

In a project you may set the  build information in the file AssemblyInfo.cs under the projects Properties folder. Here is a snippet of the AssemblyInfo.cs file:

// Version information for an assembly consists of the following four values:
//      Major Version
//      Minor Version 
//      Build Number
//      Revision
// You can specify all the values or you can default the Revision and Build Numbers 
// by using the '*' as shown below:
[assembly: AssemblyVersion("6.3.0")]
[assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("6.3.0.*")]

But there is no such file for an web application project, so I have to get this information from one of the compiled DLLs that is in the same assembly as my web application then? Or how is this done?


The reason I want this information is because my customer would like to have a webpage within the web application where he could see the current version. This is also nice to have when testing and debugging etc.




Developing mobile web applications with Visual Studio 2008 and ASP.NET Mobile Controls

I have seen a lot of posts in this forum concerning the question how to develop mobile web applications with Visual Studio 2008. In VS 2008 the templates for Mobile Web Forms are missing and there is no more designer support for ASP.NET Mobile Controls. In the Your Websites, Our Passion! blog you can download a ZIP file with the templates compiled by Omar Kahn. And I found another interesting blog post about the Microsoft Mobile Device Platforms with a discussion when Mobile Controls should be used and when not.
