Upload File from WAP Cell Phone


Overview


Preferences - Do not show ads

Many wireless devices like cell phones can be used as a digital camera or as a music player. With them, you can take pictures, record video clips and listen to your favorite MP3 songs at any time and in any place.

However, your cell phone may not have enough space to store all your pictures, video clips, music files, ringtones, etc. To solve this, you can upload some files to a server through a WAP connection. When you need them, you can download them back to your cell phone.

For example, if you are traveling in a beautiful country, you will definitely take many photos and record many video clips with your cell phone. You can upload some of the image files and video files to a server to share with your friends and at the same time make room for more photos and videos along the journey.

Some cell phones support both file upload and 3G wireless network. The upload speed will be very fast if you are using a 3G connection.


How to Upload Files from WAP Cell Phones

Both WML (the markup language of WAP 1.x) and XHTML MP (the markup language of WAP 2.0) do not support file upload. But fortunately the browser on some WAP 2.0 cell phones support the <input type="file"> element as an extension of XHTML MP. Some HTML-capable WAP browsers also support the <input type="file"> element.

The <input type="file"> element will be rendered as a button on a WAP browser. When it is clicked, the list of files stored on the wireless device and the memory card will be displayed. You can then choose a file to upload to the server.

At the server-side, you use a server-side technology like ASP / ASP.NET, ColdFusion, Java Servlet / JSP, Perl and PHP to extract the file from the HTTP request, just like what you will do to handle HTML file upload. Then you can process the file or save it to a directory or a database system.
