Title: Mobile Application Development


1
Mobile Application Development
2
Agenda
  • Emerging mobile services
  • Limitations of current technology
  • Developing mobile applications using Eximius
    mBaze framework
  • Bookstore service an example application

3
Demand Drivers
  • Consumer applications
  • Communication
  • Entertainment
  • Enterprise applications
  • Collaboration
  • Integration with Personal Information Management
    Systems (PIM)
  • New application frontiers
  • More capable devices open new possibilities

4
Consumer Applications
  • Messaging
  • Text messaging is the top data service world
    wide
  • Driven by convenience and simplicity
  • Users want more
  • Use of picture and video messaging significantly
    increases data traffic
  • Game downloads
  • Driven by availability of better devices and
    increasing familiarity with mobile internet
  • On the phone games are fast, convenient, have
    nice user interface
  • Information Retrieval
  • From service provider to users
  • Local news/weather/traffic alert subscriptions
    via text messaging
  • From users to service providers
  • Surveys, polls, discussions

5
Enterprise Applications
  • In the enterprise PIM is the king
  • Dedicated devices such as RIM BlackBerry widely
    used since they provide seamless information
    sharing with the desktop
  • Always-on pushed-based communication eliminate
    the need for inconvenient synchronization
  • Increasingly consumer devices come with similar,
    low-end, built-in PIM software
  • BUT inconvenient
  • Requires synchronization
  • Difficult to share information with the desktop
  • Closed platform, non-extendable
  • HOWEVER, they are programmable
  • J2ME, Symbian Platform, Microsoft Compact .NET
  • It has become possible to have enterprise PIM
    functionality on low consumer devices!

6
Emerging Applications
  • Location Based Services
  • Users are already showing interest as illustrated
    by increasing use of text message alerts on local
    news/weather/traffic reports
  • Location information available on increasing
    number of devices
  • Mobile Payments
  • Mobile Ticketing

7
Mobile application characteristics
  • Programmability
  • Potential for creating more responsive
    applications
  • (combats bad perception left by WAP)
  • Critical personal data
  • Every application will access personal user
    profile in some form
  • Customizations, preferences, authentication
    information, personal information (contacts,
    tasks, appointments, etc.)
  • Mobile payments (credit cards, account
    information, e-tickets)
  • Asynchronous Communication
  • Most applications are best described as
    event-based?core of the application logic is to
    react to some external events.

Agenda
  • Emerging mobile services
  • Limitation of current technology
  • Developing mobile applications using Eximius
    mBaze framework
  • Bookstore service an example application

9
Current Technology
  • SMS
  • request-reply text applications
  • WAP
  • Web applications
  • J2ME
  • Java applications

10
Example Application
  • Mobile Payments
  • Access to the Internet via a mobile device to
    buy and sell services
  • Examples mobile banking, brokerage services,
    bill payments,
  • information services

11
Using SMS
  • Insecure
  • Cumbersome to use
  • Users need to remember cryptic SMS commands
  • Cannot store credit card information on the
    device
  • Limited extensibility
  • Payment history, merchant incentives, etc.

12
Using WAP
  • Equivalent to web payments
  • Slow as pages making up user interface need to be
    downloaded for every payment
  • Request-reply interaction incompatible with Bill
    notification
  • Limited ability to save information locally
  • Extendable
  • Can be developed and deployed very quickly

13
Using J2ME
  • Insecure
  • HTTP request-reply problem
  • (same as for WAP)
  • Requires considerable software development
  • More difficult to deploy
  • Simple, intuitive, pleasing user interface
    possible
  • Very extendable

14
Developing Mobile Applications
  • Lower your cost of development
  • Almost all web/desktop/enterprise applications
    are developed using some framework
  • Mobile Apps are the same, dont reinvent the
    wheel!
  • Advantages of a framework
  • The infrastructure is already built for you
  • The infrastructure if maintained for you
  • You can concentrate on developing your
    application
