Final Year Project: A Mobile Application For Banking Processes
Final Year Project: A Mobile Application For Banking Processes WAP 2.0 – The purpose of this project is to discuss the issues associated with the deployment of a secure, WAP-based, transactional banking system, and to build a solution with these issues in mind. There are many pitfalls and problems that have to be overcome when developing a m-commerce solution, ranging from security to providing support for the multitude of WAP-enabled devices that are currently on the market.
The problems of linking into an existing back-end infrastructure also need to be met. This paper will compare and contrast available technologies that could be used to solve each of these issues, and justify the technologies that were finally chosen. The goal of this project is to develop a combined retail banking application that was to be delivered multiple channels, including WAP devices.
The information has to be retrieved from existing back-end systems on a combination of different platforms. In the following section a detailed description of what WAP and wireless technology is will be enlightened.
