Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you want to develop mobile apps with Java—and have them work on a variety of devices powered by iOS and Android? Youve come to the right place.

This project-driven book shows you how to build portable apps with two amazing open source frameworks, Google Web Tools (GWT) and PhoneGap. With these tools, youll use learn how to write Java code that compiles into cross-platform Javascript and HTML, and discover how to take advantage of features in several popular devices, such as the camera, accelerometer, and GPS.

  • Get started with GWT by building an example Twitter search app
  • Build a example web app and adapt it for mobile with CSS
  • Add touch centric controls with the GWT Mobile UI library
  • Develop a working wine journal app that tracks a users GPS location
  • Use techniques to make a mobile version of your web or desktop app
  • Work with HTML5 Canvas to build a mobile video game
  • Package your apps for iOS, webOS, and Android with PhoneGap

Synopsis:

Mobile applications are hard enough to design and build without having to rewrite the app for multiple, often incompatible, platforms. Using GWT and PhoneGap this book will show you how you can use a language you already know, Java, to build mobile apps for multiple mobile platforms at once; even on platforms that do not natively support Java. Further, this book will show you how to access device features, design user interfaces that fit the constraints of mobile devices, then use these skills to build a full client/server application for all of the major mobile platforms.
