For enabling WAP on webservers, we need to configure the mime types for WAP document extensions. The following extensions need to be configured on webserver.

Configuring Apache :
These extensions can be added in httpd.conf. Include this line in conf file and restart the server.
AddType <MIME_TYPE> <EXTN>
Go to Start > Run > Inetmgr > Right click on Default Website > Properties > HTTP Headers > MIME Types. You can add or edit the MIME settings accordingly.
WML in Nokia Toolkit
Posted on March 30, 08 @ 12:18 am under WML and WAP and has no comments.
WML cannot be opened in Nokia Mobile Internet toolkit. This is because of the JRE version incompatibility. If your system doesn't have JRE 1.4, or if you have latest version of JRE, this problem occurs.
To solve this, degrade your JRE version to 1.4. For more info, see this link.
