We just published a new, step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to build an HTML5 mobile app in Tiggzi Mobile App Builder connected to OpenShift REST API. It’s based on this example.
The app has two pages, and two services. One service gets the current list of users. The second services creates a new user. Give it a try and let us know if you have any questions! If you are new to Tiggzi, the cloud-based HTML5 and PhoneGap mobile app builder – simply sign up for a Free plan.
The RichFaces team has been doing an amazing job on RichFaces 4.1 and today released Milestone 3. Many components in 4.1 have been optimized for mobile. You can see the Milestone 3 components showcase deployed to OpenShift – Red Hat’s PaaS. It uses device detection and will show the mobile optimized version if you access from a mobile device.
Staying on mobile topic, if you want to build HTML5 and native mobile apps using cloud services, try Tiggr Mobile Apps Builder.
In the showcase, you will find a number of new components:
rich:editor, rich:orderingList, and rich:pickList are components from RichFaces 3.3 that didn’t make into 4.0, so this very good. The new component is rich:notifyMesssage. It’s a very cool component, it allows showing messages in a floating box. Try it.
