Pinned topic Objective-C model availability?

‏2012-07-16T08:30:11Z |
Hi,

I believe a valuable ICN feature is the possibility to customize it, exploiting the ECM JavaScript model and Dojo widget library.

Do we have a similar story in mobile space? Are there any plans to make publicly available the ECM Objective-C Model, in order to foster the development of custom mobile apps?

Thx, bye
Marco

    It is definitely under consideration to make the Objective-C model upon which the iPad application is based publicly available. Unfortunately we cant make public commitments or indications of timelines for future product deliveries.

    If you have a specific customer requirement in the short term please contact the Content Navigator product management team and we will advise on the options.

    Thanks Steve.
    No specific engagement/requirement about this (until now), I just wanted to clarify which current options were available for development, in order to give prospects a clear scenario.

    You can create custom mobile experiences using the JavaScript modeling API and widgets as hybrid applications. It is also possible to leverage the JavaScript modeling API with native view components with a bit more work.

    Is there any update on making the Objective C Model available for developing custom iOS apps?

    At this time we do not have any intention of making the Objective C model available. The JavaScript modeling API's should and can be leveraged on mobile devices to build compelling mobile applications.

    Thanks Dana!

    I'll assume the ICN Mobile app will continue to be supported as an "as is" app from the Apple store, and that custom mobile development for ICN should target the web browsers (e.g., Safari) for mobile devices using the Javascript API.

    Please confirm if this is a good assumption.

    You can use the JS components to build an HTML5 app or a hybrid application. It's also possible to use the JS components with native UI controls.
