I am testing out a wireless app desined to work in the openwave environment. While it works fine, the screen on the phone to be used are too small and cumbersom to read. The wireless app is designed as an input app to enter specific information to a database (oracle) from employees wrking in the field (employee puts themslves on a service call, record information about the work being done and enter their labor for the call) The data then updates a larger enterprise level record keeping system)
The code to the logon of the app is:
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN""http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml
<meta forua="true" http-equiv="Cache-Control"
<card id="Welcome" title="Welcome">
<p align="center" mode="nowrap">
" alt=""/> <br/>
<i>Begin by <br/>

<do type="accept" label="Login">
<card id="Login" title="Login">
<setvar name="password" value="" />
User Name: <input type="text" name="name" size="15" format="NNNN"/><br/>
Password: <input type="password" name="password" size="15" format="NNNN"/>
<do type="accept" label="Go">
<postfield name="v_emp" value="NONE"/>
<postfield name="v_user" value="$(name)"/>
<postfield name="v_passwd" value="$(password)"/></go>
If I try and look at this page in every browser EXCEPT Opera, I get a request to download the above file. Opera actually opens the file and you can execute it on the screen as if you where using the phone. I want to try and get this to work in other browsers as it will allow us to save a lot of money. The phones are too small and most of our users are not computer savey and will have an even harder time working the phones.
I want to try and get this on to something with a bigger screen and run it in a browser instead of using an oopen wave enabled cell phone. It was designed for open wave.
What is different between Opera and everything else? I guess opera allows wap / wml content to be displayed. Is there a way to add functionality to safari or firefox to allow this. I don't really know what I am talking about here, so I am having difficulty searching for answers.
Any help would be great. I want to try and get this working in safari specifically as we want to use Iphones. Our Org is mostly Macs and thus synking data would be a snap!
