It is possible to package an existing web application such as the one developed during the training into a native application. One of the ways to do that is to use Apache Cordova, a mobile opensource framework which supports seven mobile platforms: Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Palm WebOS, Bada and Symbian. Adobe Phonegap is derived from Cordova and adds to it additional capabilities like building apps in the cloud.
The work to do is:
- Install the Android SDK, Node.js and Cordova
- Create a skeleton Android application using the cordova command
- Copy the jQuery Mobile application developed during the training to the Android application
- Test the Android application using a real Android device (or the Android emulator)
