The Platform of the Future
HTML5 changes the game by allowing developers to be able to finally live up to the long unfulfilled promise of “write once, run many.” By creating a unified standard for the web, HTML5 promises to complete the mission HTML started decades ago. We can now evolve away from specific devices and instead function on the application and experience, without being excessively encumbered by the limitations of device or OS. The Browser allows for these changes thus making it the platform of the future.
The All-pervasive Browser
The common thread that runs across all devices is the browser. Devices run on different platforms but they all need a browser to access the Internet. The browser will be able to seamlessly launch any application or functionality. In this sense, all the differences between the various devices become irrelevant.
With HTML5, the browser has become a full-fledged platform for everything and anything graphical. High-performance features like 3D CSS, vector graphics, and WebGL turbocharge web apps with amazing 3D graphics and special effects. Rich audio, graphical APIs and low-latency networking of WebSockets let you create a compelling and immersive experience for your users and audience.
Free yourself from third-party Stores
Identify browser problems that impact your end-users and ensure device compatibility issues do not result in lost revenue and brand equity. See how your website renders across all mobile devices. You can also control the update process of all software applications online. This lack of dependence on third parties to deploy and upgrade software allows quick turnaround times when doing upgrades. You can also upgrade all devices automatically.
Google Web Toolkit
Multi-platform and Device Ready
With Google Web Toolkit (GWT), all applications are developed in Java. Once the application is complete, GWT translates the Java application to full standalone HTML5 applications that are optimized for and supported by each mobile browser. That way you can build once and run with the best performance on every device.
Highly Optimized Code
Highly Scalable Solutions
The User Interface code runs completely in the browser and it is possible for the server to treat each request as independent and in no way related to previous requests. Calls to the server are only made when the User Interface needs to refresh.
Highly Optimized Communication
There are definite advantages in having streamlined data communication between the client and server. GWT provides built-in optimized bandwidth solutions for your client side code to communicate with the server while sharing data object definitions. This is achieved sending the minimal request payloads recognized by a map reference existing on both ends. This saves on bandwidth and eliminates reliability on an Internet connection.
A GWT "module" is simply an encapsulation of functionality. Google Web Toolkit allows you to create reusable modules allowing for huge amounts of flexibility and testability. These modules are suitable as a basis for customization to meet your specific needs.
Deploy to All Stores
Access to Native APIs
PhoneGap lets you acess native APIs such as camera, contacts, media, storage and many more. If your requirements are unique and you need an API that is inaccessible via the browser, PhoneGap can provide the solution.
