cross platform application
Hello to all ,
We would like to write a web application that will be able to run both on a
PC and a PDA . The application will use Web Services to get the data from the server and will
represent it using a GUI .
We wish to use AJAX in the client side both on the PC and the PDA .
The main problem we're facing is that the UI in the PDA is much smaller than
the UI on the PC .
Does anyone know a good solution that can help us achieve the above task ?
Thanks in advance ,
Re: cross platform application
To achieve best results, I would recommend independantly implementing the PDA and PC User Interfaces. In addition to the obvious issues such as aspect ratio and screen size, the typical bandwith differences may indicate similar yet different implementations.
Do a good architecture study. Determine what code is independant of the UI, and implement this as a class library that can be shared to minimize duplication. Using this technique can really slim down the UI. I typically reduce the UI to the point where there is rarely more than 2-3 lines of code in the individual methods.
