Shay Shmeltzer's Oracle Development Tools Tips

Getting started with iOS development using Eclipse and Java

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

Want to use Eclipse to build an on-device mobile application that runs on iOS devices (iPhones and iPads)?

No problem - here is a step by step demo on how to do this:

Oh, and by the way the same app will function also on Android without any changes to the code :-)  

This is an extract from an online seminar that I recorded for one of Oracle's Virtual Technology Summits - and I figured people who didn't sign up for that event might still benefit from having access to the demo part of the video.

In the demo I show how to build an on-device app that access local data as well as remote data through web services, and how easy it is to integrate device features too.

If you want to try this on your own, get a copy of the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, and follow the setup steps in the tutorial here.

And then just follow the video steps.

The location of the web service I accessed is at: http://wsf.cdyne.com/WeatherWS/Weather.asmx?WSDL

And the Java classes I use to simulate local data are  here.

    guest1 - you can develop for iOS on windows - but you can't package/deploy and test on an actual iOS device or simulator. For these tasks you need Xcode, and apple only makes those available on Mac OS.

    When I try to copy and paste the getCamera method into the code, and then after I assign them values, the show camera dialog does not show up. Is there anything that I forgot to do?

    I am new in mobile app development profession and till now I have worked on some popular platforms. I have used Java for developing ios apps but never used Eclipse.. as you have provided here information about eclipse it is seeming best. I will definitely use eclipse by following the given information.
