Yesterday I attended a proof of concept presentation for the newly acquired Worklight v5 product from IBM. The acquisition actually took place in February, but IBM has had to take the time to make sure that it would play nice and integrate with their server technology.
So what is one of the coolest parts of the platform? The fact that you can build your entire enterprise mobile application with jQuery Mobile. They have support for jQuery Mobile baked right into Worklight Studio (read as ‘modified eclipse installation’) and ready for use on your first and beyond project.
For those that want to checkout the Worklight offering, you can do so for free by going to the Eclipse Marketplace and searching for Worklight. This will install the plugin to your Eclipse environment and you can start creating projects from there. For those that want to use Dojo Mobile, they have a WYSIWYG drag-and-drop interface that can be used to help place mobile views and to create your app. Word on the streets is that a WYSIWYG version for jQuery Mobile is being developed and will be released soon (which I hope this rumor is true as it is a much easier sell for managers and marketers when they can see the interface rather than line after line of code).
As always keep on keeping on, and let everyone know what you think by posting in the comments.
