IBM Worklight applications
Develop mobile applications using any of four different approaches:
IBM Worklight projects and environments
To develop Worklight mobile applications, first create a project in IBM Worklight Studio.
You build applications for...
- Mobile environments...
- BlackBerry 10
- BlackBerry 6 and 7
- Windows Phone 8
- Windows Phone 7
- Desktop environments...
- Windows 8
- Windows 7
- Mac OS
- Web environments...
In projects, after creating an application, there is a main application folder, which contains...
$ cd /IBM/Worklight/ApplicationCenter/installer/IBMAppCenter/apps/AppCenter
$ ls -CF
android/ application-descriptor.xml common/ iphone/
We can test most applications with the Mobile Browser Simulator in Worklight Studio. We cannot test native code with Worklight Studio. To test native code, test it with a real device or with the development kit of the appropriate environment.
IBM Worklight skins
To write code specific to a certain device, create a skin, which is a variant of an environment.
Skins provide support for multiple form factors in a single executable file for devices of the same OS family. Skins are packaged together in one app. At run time, only the skin that corresponds to the target device is applied.
