What people are saying about Building iPhone Apps w/ HTML, CSS, and JavaScript "The future of mobile development is clearly web technologies like CSS, HTML and JavaScript. Jonathan Stark shows you how to leverage your existing web development skills to build native iPhone applications using these technologies." --John Allsopp, author and founder of Web Directions "Jonathan's book is the most comprehensive documentation available for developing web applications for mobile Safari. Not just great tech coverage, this book is an easy read of purely fascinating mobile tidbits in a fun colloquial style. Must have for all PhoneGap developers." -- Brian LeRoux, Nitobi Software It's a fact: if you know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you already have the tools you need to develop your own iPhone apps. With this book, you'll learn how to use these open source web technologies to design and build apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch on the platform of your choice-without using Objective-C or Cocoa. Device-agnostic mobile apps are the wave of the future, and this book shows you how to create one product for several platforms. You'll find guidelines for converting your product into a native iPhone app using the free PhoneGap framework. And you'll learn why releasing your product as a web app first helps you find, fix, and test bugs much faster than if you went straight to the App Store with a product built with Apple's tools. Build iPhone apps with tools you already know how to use Learn how to make an existing website look and behave like an iPhone app Add native-looking animations to your web app using jQTouch Take advantage of client-side data storage with apps that run even when the iPhone is offline Hook into advanced iPhone features -- including the accelerometer, geolocation, and vibration -- with JavaScript Submit your applications to the App Store with Xcode This book received valuable community input through O'Reilly's Open Feedback Publishing System (OFPS).

This book goes into the trenches to review actual use cases for each of these APIs and gives real-world examples on how to use each one. If you're familiar with JavaScript, CSS and HTML basics and are ready to start piecing together the architecture of HTML5, then this book is for you. Assemble a coherent architectural whole from HTML5’s complex collection of parts Gain a clear understanding of client-side architecture and the "mobile first" approach Design, create, and tune eye-catching and robust mobile web apps Explore how the top five JavaScript MVC frameworks interact with the server Learn best practices for setting up a raw WebSocket server Examine how sites such as Google, Twitter, and Amazon store data on the client Use real-world methods for applying geolocation, and learn the pitfalls of various implementations Process images and other data in the background with Web Workers

Cu> Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source Java development framework for building Ajax-enabled web applications. Instead of the hodgepodge of technologies that developers typically use for Ajax–JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and XMLHttpRequest–GWT lets developers implement rich client applications with pure Java, using familiar idioms from the AWT, Swing, and SWT. GWT goes beyond most Ajax frameworks by making it easy to build desktop-like applications that run in the ubiquitous browser, where the richness of the user interface is limited only by the developer’s imagination. This book focuses on the more advanced aspects of GWT that you need to implement real-world applications with rich user interfaces but without the heavy lifting of JavaScript and other Ajax-related technologies. Each solution in this practical, hands-on book is more than a recipe. The sample programs are carefully explained in detail to help you quickly master advanced GWT techniques, such as implementing drag-and-drop, integrating JavaScript libraries, and using advanced event handling methodologies. Solutions covered include • Building custom GWT widgets, including both high-level composites and low-level components • Implementing a viewport class that includes iPhone-style automated scrolling • Integrating web services with GWT applications • Incorporating the JavaScript framework into GWT applications • Combining Hibernate and GWT to implement database-backed web applications • Extending the GWT PopupPanel class to implement a draggable and resizable window • Creating a drag-and-drop module, complete with drag sources and drop targets • Deploying GWT applications to an external server • Dynamically resizing flex tables • Using GWT widgets in legacy applications developed with other frameworks, such as Struts and JavaServer Faces Complete Sample Code Available at All of the code used in this book has been tested, both in hosted and web modes, and in an external version of Tomcat (version 5.5.17), under Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. For Windows and Linux, we used 1.4.60, and for the Mac we used 1.4.61. NOTE: There are three separate versions of the code.
