Mobile Application Development With ColdFusion 11

A phenomenal revolution in the World of communication has led to an unending need for mobile application development. A few years ago mobile phone were used just for making calls and for sending the text messages, but now they are being used for playing games, ordering their desired things and many. Thus, most companies are focusing on developing the advanced mobile applications that would help them to enhance their performance in the competitive market.

Though there are an umpteen number of platforms available in the market, ColdFusion 11 and ColdFusion builder 3 is used by most experts for developing HTML-based mobile applications. One cane easily built a mobile application by making use of client-side HTML, CFML and a JavaScript.

Furthermore, a CF developer will have an opportunity to debug their application using the build-in-client CFML debugger.

CF Mobile Application Development

In general, HTML5 mobile applications are developed with the support of Javascript, CSS and HTML. Now the question that buzzes in your mind is what has made it suitable for mobile app development? Well, the smart answer for your query is the availability of its web browser components in software development Kit.

Client-side CFML

It’s a known fact that CF11 enables to develop mobile apps by making use of HTML5, PhoneGap and CFML. Here, an individual do not need to have fine cognizance on the PhoneGap or other related development models. He or she must be familiar only with the ColdFusion mobile device APIs.

Unlike the general server-side CFML that is used for compiling and executing on the server to generate the HTML output, make use of Client-side CFML code <cfclient> tag to execute in the browser.

Translation of CFML to JavaScript

When you have set your mind to develop a standalone mobile app, where the pages are not being supported by a server, every line of the code that is present in the app must be in JavaScript, CSS or HTML. Remember, a mobile developer will not be able to execute a CFML code here, thus Client-side CFML must be converted to JavaScript prior to the execution.

CF11 does both of this in two cases such as:

When a mobile app has been well packaged to be installed as a stand alone app in a device
When any page with the tag of <cfclient> is be served
