IBM® Web Content Manager enables users to create and manage content that is displayed on the web. Because there is no direct integration between Web Content Manager and mobile applications, a user needs to use a web browser in order to render Web Content Manager contents on a mobile device or tablet. Mobile applications built with IBM Worklight® use REST interfaces to retrieve data from the server side in JSON format. This article shows how you can expose Web Content Manager content using a REST/JSON interface that can be consumed from mobile applications implemented with Worklight. This same technique can also be used for a REST/XML interface, and also for non-Worklight applications. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
