SAS & Nokia teams up for WAP developers

SAS, in an agreement with Nokia, will be providing developers using its AppDev Studio solution a quick access to Nokia's WAP server to test our wireless applications.

SAS and Nokia have made an agreement that will allow business intelligent applications developers access to testing on Nokia's WAP Server.

AppDev Studio is a suite of Java-based development tools which the company calls a "complete stand-alone environment for building Java applications/applets and other Web-based applications."

Under the agreement, a 30-day free trial of the Nokia WAP Server will be given to customers who have licensed SAS' AppDev Studio worldwide.

Nokia's WAP Server is a software solution that connects WAP enabled mobile terminals to content and applications hosted by Web servers or any other server on the Internet or Intranet.

Version 2 of AppDev Studio, which will be available this December, will include Nokia's software development kit that will enable developers to immediately test their applications on the server.
