CCS3 Animations 


jQuery Mobile on the IBM i 

by Trevor Seeney

Implementing Animations and Transformations on the IBM/i using CSS3.

                You no longer need Flash to create web-based animations and interactivity. With the introduction of CSS3 it is now possible to create animations and interactivity entirely in CSS markup.

                Animations are used to draw the attention of the user to a particular location on the page. In today's environment,  where mobile devices are more prevelant than desktop devices, animation is also used to slide-in additional content overlayed over the original content.

                This presentation will guide the attendee through the creation of simple animations for consumption on our server  of choice the IBM/i. 

jQuery Mobile and the IBMi

                jQuery Mobile is a HTML5-based  Javascript framework with a user interface system designed to make responsive web sites and apps that are accessible on all smartphone, tablet and desktop devices. Note that the inclusion of the word 'mobile' in the name is a misnomer as it works very well on tablets and desktops.

               There are many Javascript frameworks, (Ext-js, Dojo, midori, MooTools. Prototype, iUI) but JQuery Mobile is truly multi-platform and does not require a prior knowledge of Javascript and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).  This presentation shows how to deploy the jQuery Mobile framework on the IBM/i and how it's  "write less, do more" mantra allows you to design a single highly-branded responsive application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms.

                JQuery Mobile provides the IBM/i programmer with a fast path to developing browser-based applications on our platform of choice.
