Protocol) 2.0 Developer toolkit. The toolkit contains a WAP 2.0-compatible

of being the first company in the world to have WAP 2.0-based gateway
and browsers in October 2001.
“WAP 2.0 is a significant improvement over its predecessor WAP 1.2, and
is expected to firmly establish the mobile Internet industry created by
the WAP 1.x specification,” said Mahesh Jain, CEO of Jataayu Software. “Jataayu, as one of the early adopters of WAP2, now leads the way by providing the tools needed by the wireless developer community to start delivering innovative applications and services based on WAP2.”
Dr. Gopalakrishna, Director & Advisor, said that the launch of the Jataayu
WAP2 Tookit, as well as the online community to help adopt WAP 2 technology,
will let developers start working with WAP2 without having to wait for
device manufacturers to release supported devices.
Raj Kesarimall, Director Marketing, says that the release of Jataayu
WAP2 Toolkit will propel Jataayu to a position of leadership in this area.
