I'm new to wap topic. Now i'm doing a project that allow people to send their sms request to download ringtones, java application, wall paper and etc to their phone. But i have little knowledge about this. Hope all the experts can help me.

FYI, I'm using apache, JSP and kannel to develop this product.

1. I know that i need to configure .htaccess file on the apache server to accept wml E.g.
AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType text/vnd.wap.wml wml
AddType audio/midi mid
But if i'm only using tomcat then what should i configure it?

2. I stored all the content(ringtones, wallpaper, java application) in the mysql database (using BLOB) so how can i retrieve the content when the user want to download it? I cannot just put a hyperlink to the file because all the file is inside the database.

3. Is't possible to get the phone model when the user access to my wap page? Is't i need to do content conversion for different phone manufacture?

4. How can i know whether the user has successful download the content in order to charge them?

Many Thanks.

dunno bout jsp but you read the file into the Response.ContentStream, set the ContentType, ContentSize and post the data back to the phone

try to find mime type in the response, that might have the name of model number.

OR, u can do one thing, you first ask the phone type, then process downloading of the content.

The MIME types can be configured at tomcat_home_directory/conf/web.wml in Tomcat.
