SmartGWT.mobile

Build Web and Native mobile applications for multiple platforms, in Java
BETA

SmartGWT.mobile lets you use Java to build ultra-lightweight mobile applications with native look-and-feel, leveraging the same powerful server framework as Smart GWT.

Use Java and Eclipse to write mobile applications

SmartGWT.mobile is based on GWT (Google Web Toolkit), which means you can write your application in Java using Eclipse, even using step-through debugging to troubleshoot. You never have to learn the idiosyncrasies of HTML and JavaScript behavior on different devices because that's handled by the framework - just write Java.

Single Codebase across multiple devices, web and installed

SmartGWT.mobile lets you deliver to a variety of smartphone devices from a single codebase, instead of using 4-5 different sets of tools and technologies to build mobile apps for each major platform.

SmartGWT.mobile supports packaging with PhoneGap to create installable native applications that have access to on-device resources such as the user's address book or photos.

The API and Server Platform you already know

SmartGWT.mobile and Smart GWT use the same server technology. DataSources and server business logic defined in either technology can be immediately reused with the other, with no new coding required. Like Smart GWT, SmartGWT.mobile can also be integrated with third-party server technologies via REST services.

The UI components of SmartGWT.mobile have the same Java API as Smart GWT's UI components, resulting in quicker learning as well as both conceptual and code re-use between your desktop, tablet and mobile applications.

Ultra-lightweight with native look and feel

Through advanced use of CSS3 and HTML5 techniques, SmartGWT.mobile applications look and feel exactly like native mobile applications, even replicating smooth 3D animations and screen transitions.

Using GWT means that your application only downloads the specific widgets and features you actually use, automatically handling an important optimization process you would otherwise have to perform by hand.
