Exporting mobile timetables to your school's web page
You will need:
- Public web server (server that is accessible
only from inside of your school is not enough
- Write access to this server (e.g. ftp)
- Web server must have properly configured mime
types for jad, jar and wml extensions (see below).
- Registration code for aSc Mobile Timetables
(you will get it after you purchase aSc Mobile
Configuring mime types
Here are the mime types
that need to be configured on your web server.
Most web servers have wml type already
configured, so you will need to configure only
jad/jar. Please consult your web server
administrator on how to configure mime types on
your web server. For Apache web servers you need
only to add these two lines at the end of
"httpd.conf" configuration file:
AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/java-archive jar
Start aSc Timetables application and open your
school's timetable. Go to menu "File - Export -
Mobile". You might be asked to enter registration code
at this moment. Please enter your registration code.
You will need to do this only once.
After you have registered Mobile Timetables, "Save
as" dialog will appear. Usually it is not possible to
export directly to your web server, so you will have
to save exported files first to some temporary
directory. So please choose some directory and file
name, e.g. "timetable.jad" and click "Save".
Two files will be created: "timetable.jad" and
"timetable.jar". You will have to upload these two
files to some public directory of your web server, so
it will be accessible through some public internet
file address is important, users can download mobile
timetables by typing this address to wap browser of
It is also recommended that you will create some
wap page from which users can download mobile
timetables. Here is a sample "timetable.wml" file:
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml">
<meta name="character-set=windows-1250" content="charset"/>
<card id="card1" title="Myschool wap page">
Welcome to Myschool's wap page!<br/>
Here you can download our timetable:<br/>
Upload this file to the same directory as you have
uploaded "timetable.jad" and "timetable.jar".
Last step is to give
to your school's students and teachers, so they can
enter it in wap browser of their phones and download
