Mobile device protocols
Mobile Portal Accelerator supports various mobile device protocols.
- HDML version 3.0
- HTML version 3.2 and 4.0
- i-mode HTML (cHTML)
- MML (J-Phone Mobile Markup Language)
- Palm WCA (Web Clipping Applications)
- WML version 1.1 and 1.3
- XHTML version 1.0 Mobile, Basic, Transitional, and Full
- VDXML version 2.0
- XHTML 1.1
Note: Mobile Portal Accelerator generates WML markup for HDML devices, but an OpenWave gateway must be used to convert the WML to HDML for HDML devices.
Mobile Portal Accelerator was tested with:
- Apple iPhone 3G
- Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9003
The device repository contains a comprehensive set of over 10,000 device profiles.
The Mobile Portal Accelerator product is available in English only. However, the product does not actually interpret the contents of text objects and renders most language fonts correctly depending on device limitations. For bidirectional languages, while text characters are rendered correctly, the correct formatting of those bidirectional characters is not supported.
Character sets used for handling HTTP requests
Multi-Channel Server (MCS) determines which character set are used for handling HTTP requests and responses for a mobile device. MCS uses the following algorithm to determine the character set for a device:
- If the output.charset.forced device attribute is set for the device, then the configured character set is used.
- If the first condition is not true, and if the device specifies which character sets it supports in the Accept-Charset HTTP header, then MCS selects the highest priority character set that it supports.
- If neither (1) or (2) is true, then MCS uses the character set specified by the output.charset.default device attribute.
You can use the device repository editor available with the Mobile Portal Toolkit to modify the output.charset.forced
device attribute values if the default settings are not appropriate for your environment and devices.
The character sets configured for the XDIME markup in WebSphere
® Portal are not used.
