  • Multi-Platform - Truly develop your application only once and deploy to multiple platforms. iOS and Android platforms are supported for both phone and tablet.
  • Flexible - You can decide how to implement the UI:
    • Use existing server-based UI framework like JSF.

Whether you’re using remote URLs, local HTML or AMX, you can secure any/all of your features with a single consistent login page. Since we also give you SQLite encryption, we are assured that your data is safe.
  • Rapid - Using the same development techniques that ADF developers are already used to, you can quickly create mobile applications without ever learning another language!
  • ADF Mobile XML or AMX for short, provides all the normal input and layout controls you expect and we also add charts/maps/gauges along with it to provide a very comprehensive UI controls. You can also mix and match any of the three for ultimate flexibility!
