Build an Enterprise Mobile Real Time App in Under 30 Minutes

In the mobile world, there are no excuses for any user experience that isn’t instantaneous, dynamic, and safe.

In the mobile world, there are no excuses for any user experience that isn’t instantaneous, dynamic, and safe.

A cool way to develop these types of apps is with the use of a growing technology standard, WebSocket.  This standard has been around since 2011 and allows you to add nifty real-time features to a mobile app.

Let’s use the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway and build our first real-time mobile app.  Download the  JMS Edition of the Gateway to get started.  Included are a collection of Web, native and hybrid JMS demo apps for both iOS and Android to learn from.  But why not just build one yourself?

All of the demo apps involve the same major programming steps (and model–view–controller pattern).  All you have to do is simply import the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway client libraries and then add the following methods:

  1. Event listeners for the user actions in the Touch User Interface (TUI).
  2. Connect and disconnect methods for connecting the app to the Gateway and updating the TUI.
  3. A method for creating JMS topics and queues.
  4. A message listener to manage JMS messages.
  5. An exception listener to handle when a JMS provider detects an exception.
  6. Methods for when the app is paused, resumed, and closed.

That’s all you need.

Thirty minutes from now you can have your own Enterprise-level WebSocket JMS mobile app for you to experiment, extend, and impress with. Excited? Well off you go:

  1. Go get the JMS Edition Gateway and start it. For information on starting the Gateway, see the Setup Guide.
  2. Download and install any JMS-compliant message broker. Or better yet, use the Apache ActiveMQ JMS broker included in the JMS Edition of the Gateway. See the Setup Guide for how to start ActiveMQ.  It’s dead simple.
  3. Pick a walkthrough to build your app:
    1. Native iOS or Android.
    2. Hybrid iOS or Android.
    3. Web JavaScript for mobile browsers.
    4. There’s even a Microsoft .NET/Silverlight hybrid for iOS and Android using Xamarin.

Told you it was easy!

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
