About This Guide

Sun Java™ System Portal Server Mobile Access (formerly Sun™ ONE Portal Server, Mobile Access) software is an extension to Sun Java System Portal Server (formerly Sun™ ONE Portal Server) software that enables users to access portal services from mobile devices such as cellular phones and PDAs. Mobile Access ships with three mobile applications: Calendar, Address Book, and Mail, all of which can be fully customized by developers.

The three mobile applications are based on JavaServer™ Pages (JSP™) technology, and as such, make extensive use of custom tag libraries that implement their behavior. Each tag library is customizable through a corresponding set of APIs written in the Java™ programming language.

In addition, Mobile Access software contains support for voice accessibility, which allows you to write and use applications that respond directly to voice commands.
