This IBM Redbooks publication covers end-to-end pervasive solutions and provides the implementation guidelines necessary for architects and application developers. Workplace Client Technology Micro Edition (WCTME) is an integrated platform for the extension of existing enterprise applications to server-managed client devices such as desktop and mobile computers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and other mobile and pervasive devices.
This book provides an implementation of pervasive client functions and their interaction with corresponding servers. It also includes information about the use of tools for development and deployment of an end-to-end pervasive solution, including integration considerations and application scenarios between enterprise pervasive clients, pervasive middleware and corresponding server based applications. You will find information about using tools for implementation of functions that are essential in a pervasive solution for the whole architecture such as fundamentals of programming models, capabilities provided by WCTME tooling and runtime, tooling structure and flow, wizards and code generation, platform configuration and deployment.
A basic knowledge of Java programming, Java technologies and Java open standards such as OSGi is assumed.
