    Mobile Controls for IBM Lotus Domino XPages on OpenNTF 09/10 Mobile Controls for IBM Lotus Domino XPages on OpenNTF 09/10 Presentation Transcript

    • XPages Mobile Controls http://mobilecontrols.openntf.org Niklas Heidloff, IBM 09/01/10 1
    • Agenda ● Overview ● Mobile apps with native look and feel ● Mobile apps accessing native services ● Mobile apps caching data and supporting offline 2
    • Goals of the Project ● Identify which out of the box app dev functionality for mobile apps IBM® Lotus® Domino® could support in future releases ● Demonstrate how to use the Lotus Domino XPages app dev platform today to build mobile apps with standard web development skills without having to write native/ device specific code ● Demonstrate how to build mobile apps for Android™, iPhone® and Blackberry® using XPages 3
    • Technical Goals ● Enable developers to develop mobile apps via XPages (rapid application development, access to Lotus Domino services, etc.) ● Enable developers to build mobile apps that look & feel like native apps to achieve the best user experience ● Enable developers to build sophisticated mobiles apps accessing native services and supporting offline ● Enable developers to build mobile apps via XPages easily, e.g. via reusable controls 4
    • Project Overview ● Controls using Dojo Mobile 1.5 ● XCamera using PhoneGap ● Controls using Dojo Mobile 1.5 including Offline ● Controls, controls, controls ■ Login, image viewer, date picker, menus, etc. 5
    • Scenarios ● Hide the browser ● Provide native look & feel ● Access to native services ● Offline and cached data 6
    • Scenario: Hide the Browser ● Sub scenarios ■ Address bars should be hidden ■ App specific actions should be shown ■ Bookmarks on home screens should look like bookmarks to native apps ● Android and Blackberry show that an app is 'just' a web app. iPhone is a little better 7
    • In the web browser the address bar keeps coming up and the menu button shows generic browser actions Android (similar on Blackberry – see appendix) 8
    • Instead app specific actions should be shown and the browser bar should be hidden Android 9
    • The browser's actions are displayed at the bottom The address bar can be toggeled on/off iPhone 10
    • When launched from home page bookmark the generic actions don't show up The address bar is toggeled off initially iPhone 11
    • Scenario: Hide the Browser ● Hide address bar ■ iPhone: Works out of the box ■ Android: Dojo 1.5 (dojox/mobile) hides the address bar automatically ● Hide app specific actions (Android and Blackberry) ■ Possible solutions require native apps/shells with embedded browsers at this point ■ Neither PhoneGap, nor other frameworks support this functionality at this point but hopefully in the future 12
    • Scenario: Native Look ● Many iPhone apps use the typical iPhone style ● Android has it's own style but few apps use it ● Blackberry doesn't have it's own style ● Not all apps use these styles, but many of the most popular apps, esp. for iPhone 13
    • Scenario: Native Feel ● Most Android and iPhone apps use nice page transitions ● This is not only nice to have, but required to get the necessary user acceptance. Mobile users have high expectations since they know it from other apps ● Technically this means one HTML/XSP page with lot's of hide/show and Ajax 14
    • iPhone Style 15
    • Android Style 16
    • Dojo 1.5 ● Dojo 1.5 (dojox/mobile) provides a framework to build web apps that look and feel like native apps ■ Page transitions ■ Loading indications ■ Typical styles for iPhone and Android 17
    • Reusable XPages Controls using Dojo 1.5 ● The project leverages Dojo 1.5 ● Custom styles can be used ● This part of the project works on Lotus Domino 8.5.1 and iPhone and Android ● 10 reusable controls are provided to assemble custom apps ● A live version of this app is available under http://i.openntf.org 18
    • Loading of new Content ● View control loads new entries auto- matically when scrolling down ● Progress indicators for view and document loading 19
    • Creation of new Documents ● Project shows how to create new documents (via Ajax) 20
    • Bookmarks ● Pages including pages with documents can be bookmarked ■ e.g. http://i.openntf.org/niklas/ MobileControls1.0.0.nsf/ m.xsp#document&unid=E58 F1FE324BBC2418625771A00 1C5263 21
    • Navigation ● Browser and device navigation buttons are supported 22
    • Sticky Scrollbars ● When navigating back to the view the scrollbars are sticky 23
    • Custom Styles ● Custom styles can be used 24
    • Reusable Controls ● 8 reusable XPages Controls are provided to assemble custom apps 25
    • Controls: mConfiguration and mHeader 26
    • Controls: mRectangle, Header and Entry 27
    • Controls: mPage and mView 28
    • Controls: mPage and mDocumentContainer 29
    • Control myDocument is app specific 30
    • New Documents can be created via custom Code 31
    • Blackberry ● Webkit browser of Torch simulator 32
    • Scenario: Access Native Services ● Sub scenarios ■ Local contacts ■ Camera ■ GPS/geolocation ■ Accelerometer ■ Gestures (e.g. shake, orientation change) ■ Local filesystem ■ Media (e.g. pick photo) 33
    • Sample Scenario: Take Picture and upload to Domino 34
    • Scenario: Access Native Services ● Most of this functionality is not in webkit and not in HTML5 or any other standard or proposal yet ● PhoneGap provides JavaScript APIs to use this functionality ● PhoneGap is a native app and as such needs to be deployed to mobile devices ● The XPages Mobile Controls project provides a sample how to use PhoneGap ● PhoneGap works on Android, iPhone and Blackberry 35
    • PhoneGap Demo App 36
    • JavaScript to use Camera 37
    • Scenario: Offline and cached Data ● HTML5 will support caching of resources and provide local storage capabilities ● Some webkit based browsers support today also SQL storage of data 38
    • Reusable XPages Controls leveraging Dojo Mobile 1.5 including Offline ● Same blog application as previously taken offline 39
    • Reusable XPages Controls leveraging Dojo Mobile 1.5 including Offline ● This part of the project demonstrates how to take a Notes view and Notes documents offline ● Works on iPhone and Android [and Firefox] ● A live version is available under http://208.85.188.19/niklas/MobileControls200.nsf/m.xsp 40
    • Reusable XPages Controls leveraging Dojo Mobile 1.5 including Offline ● The synchronization and offline mechanism is limited at this point: ■ The synchronization is hardcoded to the last 10 view entries and documents ■ The data is updated automatically when online ■ The content of documents is stored locally but without pictures and other embedded objects ■ Comments can be read but no new comments can be created offline 41
    • Manifest File 42
    • Offline Detection 43
    • Controls, Controls, Controls ● Reused and packaged as XPages controls from various projects ■ Dojo 1.5 ■ Wink tookit 1.0 ■ cubiq.org 44
