One of the challenges with mobile development is giving your applications a modern look and feel that meets users’ expectations. If you’re using WebSmart for mobile web development, you’re most likely already working with jQuery Mobile, which is used in the new mobile templates. It’s also possible to use jQuery Mobile with Presto to give your green screens an even more mobile-optimized UI.
Craig Pelkie and Marcel Sarrasin recently recorded an educational webinar on simplifying mobile web development with jQuery Mobile. jQuery Mobile is a free, touch-optimized web framework that makes it easy to create visually appealing mobile web applications. This webinar is now available for on-demand viewing.
WebSmart 10 is now available and includes WebSmart Mobile PHP, improved PHP file validation, DB2 PHP templates that are wrapped in objects, and support for multiple active pipes and named pipes in ILE programs. You’ll also notice that we now use one version number for the entire WebSmart family.
See a short video about WebSmart Mobile.

Presto 5 is now available and includes several exciting new features, including redesigned skins, macros and new Visual Editor elements (Google® Maps, spinner).
See a short video on the new features.
Presto’s skins, including the mobile layouts, have been completely redesigned. They have a more modern web design, use larger fonts, and are easier to customize so they match your organization’s look. The out-of-the-box skins are also consistent with the WebSmart template themes that were released earlier this year.

Presto 4.8 is now available for download. This version includes Visual Editor enhancements that allow you to add tabs and icons to your screens with out coding HTML. We also now ship the jQuery Mobile files with Presto for an even more mobile-optimized experience.
You can easily add tabs to your screens by dragging and dropping them from the Palette in the Visual Editor. Tabs help organize data and unclutter screens, and can also be used to navigate from one application to another.
Another nice addition to the Palette are several icons (e.g. print, help) that you can drag and drop onto screens, either on their own or as part of a button. Icons can make your screens more intuitive by giving users visual triggers to display the help screen, for example, instead of hitting F1.
WebSmart 9.6 is available for download. This version includes the much-anticipated WebSmart Mobile ILE, several helpful IDE shortcuts and a PHP SmartSnippet to call RPG programs using the new open source PHP toolkit for IBM i. Mobile PHP DB2 templates will be in the next release but are currently available as beta.
One of the best ways to find answers to your questions about BCD products is to use the Technical Site Search on the BCD website. This tool searches multiple technical resources including the Knowledge Base, Tech Blog, and our Code Samples. Over the last few months we have been exploring options for improving the search results. To index our internal technical documents we currently use a Google Search Appliance (in this case, the Google Mini) and we soon realized we also could also use it for our Technical Site search.
