This is a WebSphere Education Solutions Team offering, and may not conform to the usual WebSphere Education standards for content and quality.
In this 5-day instructor-led course, you learn how to use IBM Worklight V5 to develop mobile applications that run on an Android or iOS* environment.
IBM Worklight is part of the IBM Mobile Foundation family of products. IBM Worklight provides standards-based technologies and tools that can help you efficiently develop, connect, run, and manage applications for smartphones and tablets.
In this course, you learn about the capabilities of IBM Worklight and how to use them to develop mobile applications by using the IBM Worklight hybrid coding approach. The course begins with overviews of mobile development, IBM Worklight V5, and Worklight Studio. You then learn about the essential application programming interfaces (APIs) and tools that enable the development, back-end integration, security, and management of cross-platform mobile applications. This course covers topics that include IBM Worklight client-side APIs, user interface (UI) frameworks such as Dojo or Sencha Touch, Apache Cordova, integration, authentication techniques, push notification, and deploying and managing applications.
The hands-on lab exercises throughout this course reinforce lecture content by giving you direct experience in working with IBM Worklight and mobile application development. The exercises cover skills that include installing IBM Worklight, using Apache Cordova to access native device functions, and integrating native pages and web pages. You also gain practice securing applications, migrating applications to production, and using the Application Center feature to share applications with your team during development.
The lab environment for this course uses the Google Android platform, running on a Microsoft Windows virtual machine. You build and test your applications by using the Google Android SDK and an emulator.
Running lab exercises on the Apple iOS platform is only available in private class deliveries. Visit www.ibm.com/training or contact your WebSphere Education representative for more information about arranging a private on-site class.
The iOS platform is not covered in the public class. However, if you attend this course and complete the labs with the Android SDK, you can build and test applications on iOS independently. You can use the lab files from the course to build and test iOS applications on your own after the class ends. In this scenario, you must have your own Apple Mac hardware, be registered as a developer with the Apple Developer Program, and have the Apple Xcode IDE installed on your registered personal computer.
