IBM Worklight compared to “do-it-yourself” mobile platforms
This white paper will reveal how the IBM Worklight Developer Edition plug-in compares to unsupported “do-it-yourself” options. It focuses on tools for the development of web, hybrid and native mobile applications.
The IBM Competitive Project Office compared IBM Worklight Developer Edition 6.1 to an option based on Eclipse integrated development environment, Android software development kit, and popular frameworks such as jQuery, Jersey (for REST services), Apache Cordova and other frameworks.
You will see some similarities between the solutions. Both the Worklight solution and the “do-it-yourself” solutions are free to download and use, are based on similar open source components, allow the creation of different types of mobile applications on different target platforms, and can deploy and debug apps on platform emulators.
