With the general availability of Rational Application Developer 8.0.3 today, we proudly announce that it provides tooling for mobile web applications (Beta) to support the WebSphere Application Server Feature Pack for Web 2.0 & Mobile v1.1. Features provided in Rational Application Developer 8.0.3 to support mobile web applications include:
A new editor for web pages, called the Rich Page Editor (Beta). It is our next generation web page visual editing experience for HTML, Dojo, and mobile web pages. It uses an actual browser to render the design canvas for true "what you see is what you get" (wysiwyg) editing. The overall appearance of the editor and many common user interactions will be familiar to users of the Page Designer editor, however Rich Page Editor doesn't have a "Preview Tab" since the design pane is both design and preview. The Rich Page Editor's source and design panes will be kept constantly in synchronization so the user may edit freely in either.
Tooling for the creation, construction, and unit testing of mobile web pages for common devices such as Apple iPhone, Blackberry, and Android based devices. Provided are tools for project configuration, mobile web page creation, mobile web page construction, and mobile web page testing using a mobile browser simulator.
The mobile browser simulator allows multiple devices to be simulated side by side in a single view without leaving the development environment. Rotation of the mobile device is simulated as is correct sizing of the mobile device screen. This allows for rapidly identifying and correcting variations in device presentation without the need for physical devices.
Tooling is updated for all elements of the v1.1 feature pack, including an alpha version of Dojo 1.7. Dojo tooling includes support for HTML5 and CommonJS Modules/Asynchronous Definition for asynchronous module loading (AMD).
The JSON Editor has been enhanced to accept files with any filename extension, an outline view has been added, and validation has been improved.
