With the release of the Mobile Application Framework it makes sense to look into building a hybrid application that integrates assets from WebCenter into a native application. This will reduce the development cost (build once, reuse multiple times) and simplifies management. WebCenter Portal provides functionality to target specific pages to specific mobile devices. By doing so, we can build pages that are designed to be consumed in a native application.
By doing so, you can build your entire mobile application in WebCenter Portal but still make use of the native features provided by the mobile framework. It also allows you to reuse the assets and no redevelopment is required. In this blog post I will show what steps are required to build a hybrid application in both WebCenter Portal and a mobile application.
In order to build a hybrid application we need to complete a few steps:
1) Building a template in WebCenter Portal that will be used to display our pages for native integration
2) Build a custom component in your mobile application to consume WebCenter pages
3) Add the custom component to an AMX page
Each of these steps will be described in detail below. In addition to this I will also briefly explain how to reuse the navigation model from WebCenter to build a dynamic navigation in your mobile application. Read the complete article here.
