Mobile XPages for Smartphones and Tablets

Mobile XPages This series will guide you -- an IBM Lotus Notes Domino XPages developer -- through creating a touchscreen smartphone and mobile device-friendly User Interface and User Experience for an existing traditional IBM Lotus Notes Client application. These tutorials will discuss development and architectural considerations as well as deep-dive into the specific code you can use to create a Mobile XPages app.


You should be familiar with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, as this tutorial will rely heavily on these languages.

You should be familiar with XPages, Custom Controls, and Themes, as this tutorial will rely heavily on these technologies.

... it also wouldn't hurt to familiarize yourself with the Google Maps API, the Sencha Touch JavaScript Framework, WML (specifically WAP decks), and MVC Software Architecture.

Technologies & Platforms Used
