A few weeks ago we have made our Communication Library for iOS available for download. We wanted to make it available as soon as possible as people were waiting to give it a try. The interest and the response we received has been phenomenal and now the work is well underway on a ton of very cool features planned for the second release (2.0). Today we launched a product page for the library in the section of our website titled “WebORB for Mobile”. You can access the library product page at: http://www.themidnightcoders.com/products/weborb-for-mobile/ios-integration. The new section provides access to the following:
Cross platform application connectivity is to be a frequently requested and talked about feature. A lot of enterprise and consumer-facing applications require robust data exchange mechanism between application instances running on mobile devices. On top of this, many applications depend on real-time updates and notifications pushed from the server to the clients. One of the approaches for cross platform data exchange is a feature called Remote Shared Objects. The video below provides an explanation of the feature as well as a demonstration of iPhone, iPad and Windows Mobile phone communicating with each other as well as a browser-based Flex application.
The demo was built using the latest version of WebORB for .NET (the Java version would work just as well), Communication Library for iOS and a client library for Windows Mobile included into the WebORB distribution. Enjoy!
If you have asked or thought of integrating iOS apps with RTMP servers, this might be of interest to you.. I thought I’d share a small sneak peak of a feature from the upcoming release of WebORB for .NET and WebORB for Java. Our server had supported RTMP for a long time for video streaming, recording, data push and remote shared objects. But now I’m happy to let you know that RTMP support for iOS is coming up! As you can see in the following screenshots, it is a sample application using Remote Shared Object hosted in a .Net backend and a remote method invocation (via RTMP); guys, this is only a tip of the iceberg…
