Eclipse RAP Project Release 2.0 Now Supports Native Client Platforms

Ottawa, Canada, Feb 15, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- The Eclipse Remote Application Platform (RAP) project has announced the RAP 2.0 release. This new release represents a significant engineering effort that transforms RAP from a platform for creating browser-based rich internet applications to a universal platform for creating applications that target many different types of devices, including native mobile platforms, point-of-sale devices, inventory control devices, etc.

Mobile development and M2M development have made support for multiple types of devices an important requirement for enterprise application development. RAP 2.0 introduces a new JSON-based communications protocol that allows Java applications to be written once, deployed on a server, and then support a native client look-and-feel supported on a range of different target devices and platforms, such as iOS, Android, web browsers, and others. The RAP protocol makes it significantly easier to support applications on new clients without re-writing the applications for each new device platform.

RAP 2.0 also includes the following new and improved features: A new Client-API for discovery of services that are provided by the respective client implementation. These services can, for example, open documents, execute script code, or determine the current geo-position. Each client application can provide its own services.

Simplified creation of custom widgets and add-ons. Custom widgets can communicate directly with the client and server components via the RAP protocol.

A faster table widget for displaying large amounts of data.

Eclipse RAP 2.0 is now available for download. More details about the 2.0 release can be found in the New and Noteworthy document.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
