    any WML to WMLC compiler... (read on)

    Has anyone developed a WML to WMLC compiler that can be used/integrated with cgi scripts?

    If so, have you seen the benefit this gives in terms of speed performance? Is it worth it to push for this?

    We know that the WAP Gateway compiles our WML pages into bytecodes and the way Nokia WAP Gateway works its very slow. By making our applications produce WMLC direct, it improves our applications tremendously - or so I speculate.

    You speculate correctly. I have noticed significantly faster response times by using the .wmlc files. And yes, its worth it for the quality of delivery.

    About your question:
    Do you mean a compiler that will crawl over your wml files, compile each one and fix the linking? Or are you thinking about
    calling the compiler from inside your script and providing a
    filename?

    You get small improvements on precompiling STATIC WML pages that are cached anyway by the gateway.

    However for applications that generate WML pages dynamically such as games or database search, where GATEWAY CACHING is not going to help, producing a WMLC would boost performace BIG TIME.

    Im suggesting a compiler that is called from a CGI script. It receives a string as input and returns a string as output.
