WML/WAP and Database Access how do i make my WAP pages dynamic
Posted on 2003-11-07
Hey there guys,
i've created a WAP website with a selection of ringtones for myselve that i can download on the fly - i've had to create a WAP site because my phone doesnt come with any serial cable also cables are not available in order to connect a phone to a PC.
i can use the WAP site on the move so that i can download my ringtones.
But what i want to do now is make the WAP site more dynamic as i have alot of ringtones that i want to add to the site but i know that if i had them it will take a very long time as i want them in categories and in alphatical order i'll also like a page which shows only the ringtones i've added in the last 3 days.
i know that this can be done with ASP and creating a database to store the information but how would i do this.
my idea is that i create a website which i use to input new records into the database (including the name of the ringtone, category of the ringtones, date ringtone entered, size of ringtone, full link to ringtone)
i then want to create some dynamic wml pages that let allow me to search the database, and click on a link that will open up the ringtone. and also show me the ringtones in the categories, and alphabetically.
can someone please help me with this, i'm a complete beginner - i've only just started making A WAP SITE. i'm also not really any good at ASP the ASP site i did make was using dreamweaver mx and very simple using wizards etc.
i could do with all the help in the world so i'm offering all the points i have as i would like tog et this done very very soon.
also would it be easier to do this in asp or PHP or which dynamic lanuguage would be better?
