Get Moving with Mobile Apps Using Cordova, Part 1

Cordova makes the move to mobile application development an easy one.

jeff olenWritten by Jeff Olen

Have you been wondering if you have the programming chops to build an iPhone and/or Android app to interact with your IBM i data? Well, I've got good news for you. You almost certainly do. Apache Cordova makes building the mobile app itself really easy for anyone with a bit of HTML and JavaScript knowledge. Integrating AJAX calls to send and receive data from your IBM i (or other database server) is only slightly more involved.
