    Java/SMS/WAP - point me in the right direction!

    I am new to Nokia development and am looking at the possibility of using Nokia phones as part of our in house work ordering system. I need to send job tickets to staff and then allow them to respond with job start/finish times and optional comments.

    Having browsed through the developer pages I am unclear as to what direction to take. We currently have SQL Server/IIS server backend systems that we would want to link the systems too.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated

    You haven't made it clear which Nokia you're targetting.

    If I was given this problem, I'd rule out SMS immediately. Purely, because SMS would not provide a good user interface for your staff to reply with job start/finish times.

    Java MIDP has the advantage of being easily portable to non-Nokia phones.

    WAP - XHTML applications would be the easiest way to write a quick and simple application. Assuming your Nokia phone supports XHTML browsing.

    WAP ON

    I have now worked on this and roughed up a WAP application - unfortunately most of our phones are WAP only - not XHTML. Ideally I would have like to use the XHTML functions to send emails back to our helpdesk. I have had to rely on an IIS ASP page to get posted info and save it to a database.
    I am going to investigate Java MIDP further as this may give me more control over the interface

    Thanks for the comments
