With WorkLight, IBM moves briskly into the mobile space.
So what is Worklight?
Well Worklight provides an open, comprehensive and advanced mobile application platform for smartphones and tablets, helping organizations of all sizes to efficiently develop, connect, run and manage HTML5, hybrid and native applications
It leverages standards-based technologies and tools and the Worklight platform ships with a comprehensive development environment, mobile-optimized middleware, and an integrated management, and analytics console, supported by a variety of security mechanisms.
In order to help us get started writing enterprise apps in HTML5, Michael Galpin, Software Architect, ateBay has writen the first in a series of five articles on IBM developerWorks about Creating mobile Web applications with HTML 5,
HTML 5 is a very hyped technology, but with good reason. It promises to be a technological tipping point for bringing desktop application capabilities to the browser. As promising as it is for traditional browsers, it has even more potential for mobile browsers. Even better, the most popular mobile browsers have already adopted and implemented many significant parts of the HTML 5 specification. In this five-part series, you will take a closer look at several of those new technologies that are part of HTML 5, that can have a huge impact on mobile Web application development. In each part of this series you will develop a working mobile Web application showcasing an HTML 5 feature that can be used on modern mobile Web browsers, like the ones found on the iPhone and Android-based devices.
Although the article doesn't explicitly target Worklight, it would be the perfect environment in which to develop this app, since the Worklight Developer Edition is a free download..
