This Redpaper will help you plan and enable the function provided by Transcoding Technologies in the IBM WebSphere Everyplace Access Version 4.1.1 so that existing enterprise online applications can be accessed from wireless devices such as WAP phones and Pocket PCs. You will find step-by-step examples showing ways to implement text clipping, a process to manipulate existing HTML portlet pages to meet the characteristics of requesting devices. You will also find scenarios using stylesheets to transform XML portlet content into other markup languages suitable for handling by client devices. WML fragmentation, a function of portal-level transcoding, is also described in different configurations.

A basic knowledge of WebSphere Portal; portlets; Java technologies such as servlets, JavaBeans, and Java Server Pages (JSPs); as well as HTML and XML markup languages and the terminology used in Web publishing, is assumed.
