A be aware from the writer and from O'Reilly Media approximately what this bookdoes--and doesn't--do:
Palm webOS is a new platform and represents a really assorted style ofoperating approach the place the net runtime is used because the foundation for the UI andApplication version. Palm and O'Reilly felt that it used to be very important to have abook on hand to aid builders get a uncomplicated realizing of the recent Palmplatform on the time that the SDK was once published; this timing performed a majorrole within the content material and constitution of the book.
Ideally this publication could were an entire reference of the hot platformbut that wasn't attainable because the content material was once written even as asthe software program SDK was once being constructed by way of the Palm engineering crew.

The publication makes use of an easy information reader software to demonstrate the technicaldescriptions however the examples will not be meant to function a cookbooktutorial. skilled builders might be capable of use the examples to buildup a operating program bankruptcy by way of bankruptcy yet others would possibly not locate theloose descriptions enough for recreating the applying unaided. additional time, those diversified wishes might be crammed by means of different books, yet in themeantime we are hoping that this e-book will serve a worthy position introducingdevelopers to webOS and giving them a fashion of having begun with webOSapplication development.
