It seems Lloyds Register was trying to mobilize some big iron (mainframes) to the 21st century and needed some help. So it happens that Oracle Mobile Application Framework was deemed best suited for the needs. ;-) A few key points:
- iOS and Android
- Local data caching to reduce the number of times you have to go to the network
- On demand query
- Speed. Any click an wait for a network to respond was equivalent to death. (e.g. uninstall)
Apparently, soup to nuts, it only took a couple of months and voila! Old iron is was now mobile iron, thanks to Oracle MAF.
